Acknowledgement of Country:

In the spirit of reconciliation the Australian Jazz Museum acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of country throughout Australia and their connections to land, water and community. We are on the traditional land of the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people of the Kulin Nation and we pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
