Our Vision 

We envision a united Australia that celebrates and embraces our First Australians
Our Mission

To help Australians see the value of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through providing access to engaging and authentic content that will help bridge gaps in knowledge.

Common Ground is designed to build a foundational level of knowledge for all Australians, and be a go to resource for those wanting to learn more and connect with our First Peoples.

How we work

We are an Aboriginal-led organisation, and work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia to capture and share stories, and create learning material for wider Australia

We share knowledge and stories

that reflect the diversity and strength of First Australian peoples

We create educational content

that enable Australians to learn and connect with our First Australians

We acknowledge that learning online is just one part of the journey

and that building relationships with one’s local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community is key to fostering deeper understanding, appreciation and genuine, respectful relationships

We mobilise people

to connect, to learn and to embrace our First Australians

Our Values

Respect

We listen closely, invite diverse perspectives, and treat each other and our partners with respect and compassion.

Collaboration

Diversity

Commitment

We dedicate ourselves to the highest standards, nothing short of continual  improvement will help us effect the change we seek.
