Isobel Morphy-Walsh, NETS Victoria’s previous First Nations Engagement Coordinator says: 

 “One of the best things about working at NETS Victoria was the access to incredible First Nations artists, artwork and thus social commentary and cultural understandings. Working together we achieved amazing outcomes where projects ranged from curating artists, managing cultural protocols of events and artworks, to supporting touring artwork and artists. It was an extraordinary experience working with the supportive and motivated team at NETS Victoria.   

I’d highly recommend the opportunity to work with NETS Victoria as the valuation of my culture and the embedding of protocol and practice was not just embraced, it was championed.”
