MAV Statement on the Voice

Wed 18 Oct 2023

MAV wishes to acknowledge the impact of the recent referendum on the First Nations artists and communities with which we collaborate. Avenues for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to influence the very matters that directly affect their lives should have long been a given.
