The Future is Blak: First Nations People working in Arts Organisations

This is a past event.

First Nations representation in leadership positions in the arts has been a sector agenda for over a decade. Within our funding bodies, festivals, institutions, small to medium companies, universities and across the creative industries, First Peoples are making a significant impact in shifting the way we view the world.

From the ground up, how far have we really come?

As a sector have we made these pathways easier to navigate?

A panel of First Nations women and future leaders discuss what leadership means to them.
