First Nations people, their stories and images have been obscured and manipulated throughout history. Affirmation empowers Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to tell their own stories, capture their own truths, and express themselves through their own lens.

Bringing together some of Victoria’s most exciting multi-disciplinary Indigenous photographers – Paola Balla (Wemba Wemba, Gunditjmara), Deanne Gilson (Wadawurrung), Tashara Roberts (Dja Dja Wurrung, Yorta Yorta, English and German)and Pierra Van Sparkes (Pibbulman), each artist explores the concept of truth in the context of place, ancestral identity and cultural pride.
