All Ages

Indigenous filmmakers and artists have been trailblazers in breaking down the white, often male dominated barriers that have systemically disadvantaged Indigenous peoples, advocating for Indigenous people’s right to self-representation and to own and control their own stories.  
A panel of culture-shaping Australian Indigenous artists will speak to their experiences on how Indigenous artists have contributed to our national culture and identity.
Chaired by Tanya Hosch, AFTRS Council member and Social Activist.

Speakers are:

Dr Romaine Moreton, Director of First Nations & Outreach, AFTRS

Stephen Page, Artistic Director, Bangarra Dance Theatre

Nici Cumpston, Artist Director, Tarnanthi, Art Gallery of South Australia, Visual Artist

Penny Smallacombe, Head of Indigenous Department, Screen Australia
Witiyana Marika, Musical Artist, Founding Member Yothu Yindi & Actor
