We work on the lands, skies and waters of the Burramadagal of the Dharug and we pay our respects to their Ancestors and Elders, past, present and emerging. Their ceremonies, stories, traditions and spirit live and remain. We honour their custodianship, seen and unseen. First Nations first, diversity and equity are our guiding principles.

ACE provides creative empowerment and sustainability to some of Western Sydney’s most underrepresented communities.

We have a longstanding reputation for three things: we are committed to social justice, we use creativity to reverse disadvantage and we produce groundbreaking interdisciplinary, intergenerational collaborative projects co-devised with the communities with whom we work.
