About MSD

The Melbourne School of Discontent is a small, loose collective of Aboriginal academics, artists, poets, writers, thinkers and activists. The purpose of our existence is to offer an alternative historical and political narrative on Aboriginal affairs to that accepted by the mainstream of Australian society. We exist to challenge the deeply embedded racist perceptions that run riot through the veins of Australian society, as well as countering the conservative streak that has appears to have developed in Aboriginal leadership today. 

Our weapons are simply words and thoughts that might disrupt the status quo.
