This artwork and game was created on the lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people and the Boonwurrung people of the Kulin Nation. Sovereignty was never ceded and the violence of colonialism is ongoing today, including the art world. The Artist behind benefits of doubt, Gen Townsend, pays respect to Elders from all nations – past, present and future – and recognises Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the first artists in this country with connections to land, sea, and culture for over 60,000 years.
