Acknowledgement of country
Midnightsky acknowledges the Wurundjeri as the first owners of this country. We pay our respects to their Elders, past and present, and the Elders from other communities.
Acknowledgement of context
Midnightsky acknowledges the context within which we gather. We live at a time when the human species is having an unprecedented impact on the planet.
We acknowledge that the discussions we have, the decisions we make and any actions we take as a result will have consequences for other people and other species – both those living now as well as future generations.

Acknowledgement of creativity
Midnightsky acknowledges the role of the artist. We value their ability to shape the extraordinary from the ordinary, to unveil hidden truths and to inspire us to connect with each other. In doing so they help us to imagine and create the world we want to live in.
We are grateful that they invest in these pursuits for the benefit of all life.
