First Nations

Monkeystack acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Over the years, the Monkeystack studio has established an excellent co-creation model to help First Nations people connect their stories with audiences. We work with First Nations cultural bearers, artists and community leaders to produce meaningful and authentic experiences across visual, immersive and interactive mediums.
First Nations viewers are advised that this may contain images and voices of people who have passed away.
