APRA AMCOS has joined forces with RECOGNISE, the campaign calling for recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Australian Constitution.
Danielle Tuwai is the APRA AMCOS Project Manager for the RECOGNISE Campaign, and is designing and leading a program of engagement for artists and the industry.
“At the moment Australia’s highest legal document does not mention the 50,000 plus years of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ custodianship of this land, and still has sections that allow for racial discrimination,” says Danielle. “We are encouraging all Australians to join the conversation.”
Danielle is working to ensure musicians and the music industry have a good understanding of constitutional recognition – both opposition and support – ahead of a formal referendum process.
