First Nations cultural guide

To help deliver impactful events and create meaningful engagement with the Traditional Owners of the land on which MCEC is built, we have developed a guide with cultural protocols to engage in relationships with Victoria's First Peoples.

The guide delves into the use of respectful language, cultural protocols, and practices such as the Acknowledgement of Country. When planning your event, we are here to assist you in incorporating cultural awareness and appreciation.
