I believe if you are heard, healing walks closely behind. Garrijimanha's collaborative structure provides opportunity for industry professionals nation wide in supporting our Indigenous brothers and sisters, Aunties, Uncles, Elders and future leaders in sharing their culture.
I also believe in the power to unify through collaboration and how connecting organisations, industry professionals and community together at one place will create meaningful and relevant content to suit and serve the needs of all."
