Zhu Ohmu (b. 1989 Taipei, Taiwan). Currently based in Birraranga, Melbourne, Australia.
I acknowledge and am grateful to the Wurundjeri and Bunurong peoples of the Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land that I live and work on. I would like to reflect that within acknowledgement there should be action. How do we act in solidarity with First Nations peoples to end the history of silence and oppression that has resulted in Indigenous disadvantage today?
