About Us

The Ownership Project is a dynamic cross-cultural space that engages with some of the many diverse cultural groups that have come to call Australia home. The enterprise seeks to create a place of belonging, welcome and respect. The Ownership Project works in particular with refugees, migrants and Indigenous Australians to find new artist expression that has not been extensively explored and shared within our community . By encouraging individuals to express their ideas artistically we hope to empower individuals as part of the community.
