The Jumbanna Indigenous House of Learning at the University of Technology Sydney has named a meeting room after Aboriginal activist, poet and playwright Ken Canning.
Canning has a long history of political struggle and activism.
His fight for equal rights for Indigenous people led him to education in the 1980s.
In 1988 he became the first Aboriginal graduate at UTS with a BA in Communications.
He was one of the founding members of Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning, where he worked with Indigenous students at a tertiary level as an academic and cultural advisor.
