We acknowledge the traditional owners and sovereign custodians of the land on which Collingwood Yards is situated, the Wurundjeri people of the Woiwurrung language group. We extend our respect to their Ancestors and all First Peoples and Elders past, present, and future.

Common Ground
First Nations not-for-profit

Open by appointment only

Common Ground is a First Nations not-for-profit working to shape a society that centres First Nations people by amplifying knowledge, cultures and stories.

Common Ground exists to bring connection, truth and deeper understanding through storytelling.

Australia is built on a story that ignores its true history. We face many challenges, but ignore many of the solutions that First Nations people hold.

Since 1788, Australia has been largely shaped and governed by colonial narratives and systems of power. These systems do not consider First Nations voices and solutions. The work undertaken by Common Ground is about changing these systems so they centre First Nations ways of thinking, being and knowing.
