YES to the Voice to Parliament
AJC is one of 36 design practices that have co-signed an open letter of support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Australian Constitution.
As members of the Architecture + Design Reconciliation Industry Network Group (RING), we are committed to advancing reconciliation in Australia.

Our endorsed Reconciliation Action Plan formalised our commitment to advancing reconciliation in Australia. We believe the Voice is a positive step in building a fairer and more equitable Australia.
We shape spaces and places on Country across Australia. As part of the wider design community, we have begun a process of better connecting with Country – through close engagement and participatory processes led by First Nations communities. We have witnessed the positive impacts of engaging directly with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people whose wisdom, generosity, and worldview enrich our work and the built environment.
We respect the principle of self-determination. We’re committed to working towards greater equity and prosperity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
We call on other industries, businesses and organisations to join us – to stand up, speak up, and support an incredibly important moment in Australia’s history.
