Common Ground aims to help Australians to better understand the diverse cultures, histories, perspectives and experiences of First Australians, the original inhabitants and custodians of our nation. We do this by sharing engaging, accessible and trusted educational content.
Our vision is for a united Australia that comes together on common ground in celebration of the oldest living culture on earth, that of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We believe that sharing knowledge and bridging gaps in understanding will help us get there.
Common Ground has been created by Aboriginal people, with the input of non-Indigenous Australians. We have gone to great lengths to ensure the content on this site respects the diversity of First Australian peoples and perspectives, but there's always room for improvement. We'll continue to update the content, and welcome your thoughts on how we can make it better.
