Welcome to Country ceremony will be performed by Ken Hayward and Dr Glen Stasiuk:

Ken Hayward  (Noongar) brings a wealth of experience and knowledge in Cross Cultural Awareness and Aboriginal Community engagement. His experience is a culmination of twenty years working in various roles and positions to promote Aboriginal culture and facilitate better working and social relationships between Aboriginal & non-Aboriginal communities and people.  He is a traditional custodian within the Wagyl-kaip (Albany-Kattanning) regions.

Dr Glen Stasiuk (Noongar) is
 a Lecturer & senior Indigenous researcher at Murdoch University and a maternal descendent of the Minang-Wadjari Nyungars (Aboriginal peoples) of the South-West of Western Australia whilst his paternal family immigrated from post-war Russia.  These rich and varied cultural backgrounds have allowed him, through his filmmaking, research and writing to explore culture, knowledge and diverse narratives.
