A conversation with Aboriginal & Torres Islanders Practitioners about the business of being creative
Presented by Business Connect, a dedicated and personalised NSW Government program that provides trusted advice to help you start or grow your small business.
What are the realities and challenges of being an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander practitioner in the creative industries? What issues need to be faced, how has the funding landscape changed, and is discrimination still an issue?
In this FREE 2-hour event, a panel of established and experienced Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners discuss the challenges, opportunities and realities of running a creative business as an Indigenous person. The panel includes:
- Saretta Fielding (Saretta Art & Design) - Visual Arts, Design
- Blak Douglas - Visual and Performing Arts
- Mark Ross (Munkimuk) Music, Producing and Performance
- Pauline Clague (Winda Indigenous Film Festival) - Screen and Literature
- Mitchell Stanley (No Coincidence Media) - Screen Producing
Facilitator: Jade Christian is a Producer at Barangaroo Delivery Authority, and has worked in the film and television industry for a number of years. Her professional experience expands beyond the screen production sector and stretches into the arts, justice, rights management and community arts sectors working in areas that relate to stakeholder and community engagement.
Making It Work is offered in a CULTURALLY SAFE SPACE - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners are welcome and we will be presenting from a First Nations perspective.
