First Nations artists, photographers and creators to support on Canva.


Today, I would like to acknowledge the Dharug people as the Traditional Owners of the beautiful land I am standing on today. From the mountains to the river, I open my heart and my eyes as I walk this land, listening, learning and caring for Country. I want to extend this respect to Elders; past, present and emerging and to all First Nations peoples reading this post today. We are all remembered here.


Just so you know, this post does contain sponsored content through the use of affiliate links, my proud partnerships and my own products and resources and I want to thank each of you for continuing to use my affiliate links to support the work I do. As you know, each blog post is based on my own experiences, opinions, and what I have been taught, and does not represent all First Nations peoples or Communities. Please remember that, connecting with your local First Nations Community is always the most respectful way for you to embed First Nations content specific to your area.


Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists, photographers and creators on Canva

As you know, Canva is my go to teaching resource. It's where I create all of my templates, collaborate, stay organised and well... teach!

So when Canva began collaborating with some of my favourite First Nations artists and illustrators, you cannot imagine just how excited I was to begin creating!

It was like my two favourite worlds of teaching came together to create a special place, where I could create and celebrate our culture in ways like never before!

Now, so many of you have been asking...

Which First Nations artists and creators are on Canva?


How can I find them?

Well, today in this blog post all of these questions will be answered. Plus, I will share all of the links you need to be able to find and use these Canva elements in respectful and meaningful ways. Please remember that this is an ever-growing topic and as new First Nations artists, photographers and creators are added to Canva I will update you in this blog post.

Alright then, let's go!

Please note, that before we begin, I would like to refer you to this Canva post as a point of reference. As you know, it is important to follow specific First Nations guidelines and procedures to ensure you are using each of the First Nations artwork in the way that the artist has intended it to be used. As a guide, Canva has included an outline on how to respectfully use the First Nations artwork, elements, and motifs in your Canva designs, so please read this post for further guidance and clarification in this area.

Alright, now let's dive into our first First Nations artist!
