ILBIJERRI family at NIAA

ILBIJERRI family were well represented at this year’s National Indigenous Arts Awards.

Biggest congratulations to Uncle Jack Charles on receiving a Red Ocher Award for Lifetime Achievement and being hailed as ‘the grandfather of Aboriginal theatre in Australia’.

A very warm congratulations also goes to Jacob Boehme who received the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts Fellowship. Jacob’s autobiographical solo work BLOOD ON THE DANCE FLOOR, produced by ILBIJERRI, will tour nationally in August, following a successful tour of Canada earlier this year.
