First Nations & Outreach

Tjamu Tjamu 2009, by Kurltjunyintja (Jackie) Giles Tjapaltjarri

The First Nations and Outreach team comprises a small team of specialists working collaboratively to build pathways into AFTRS via outreach, community engagement and leading industry diversity and inclusion initiatives. Working across the School, the team ensures that First Nations cultures are firmly embedded in everything we do at AFTRS while ensuring that AFTRS takes a leadership position as the hub of excellence in screen and broadcast learning that is safe, inclusive and accessible to people from all across Australia.

With an internal and external focus, the team works to initiate and lead structured educational and training pathways for new, emerging and seasoned Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners across Australia. Working with key industry stakeholders, the team supports AFTRS cultural remit to ensure the stories and voices we see and hear across the screen and broadcast industries are truly representative of all Australians.
