'Acknowledgement of Country' animation

As part of its ‘You Be You’ initiative, Anglicare Southern Queensland has created this brief animated video, recorded with children’s voices, to “acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which our services now stand, and pay our respect to Elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in caring for their own communities”

Quandamooka and Bundjalung woman and ACSQ RAP Coordinator Sandra King OAM acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the land and pays respects to Elders past, present and emerging at the 2020 Diocesan Theme Launch Event at St John's Cathedral on 13 February 2020
