BIPOC/CALD in Australian Arts

BIPOC: Black (Blak), Indigenous and People of Colour
CALD: Culturally and Linguistically Diverse People

The Australian Burlesque Festival chooses at this time to use both terms due to Australia’s racial and cultural history.

The Australian Burlesque Festival honours and respects the traditional custodians of this land. We pay our respects to all Elders, past, present and emerging, for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture, and hopes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the country.
