Indigenous Gala

Festivals and Celebrations

16 Nov 2018

Up-and-coming musical powerhouse, Michael Tuahine, and a special guest panel of ‘change makers’ will headline the annual Bond University Indigenous Gala on Friday, November 16, which is expected to attract more than 500 leading business identities and locals.

Now in its 9th year, the Gala celebrates Indigenous culture and student achievements, while shining a light on—and raising funds for—the education of the next generation of Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders.

To date, the Bond University Indigenous Gala has raised more than AUD1.7 million towards Indigenous scholarships, while becoming a key date on the Gold Coast social calendar.

This year’s special guest panel of ‘change makers’ will include Lockhart River Mayor Wayne Butcher, Torres Strait Island Councillor Fraser Nai, Bond University Indigenous Cultural support officer and celebrated artist Narelle Urquhart and Walking with Wisdom managing director Jeremy Donovan, who will discuss the importance of educating young Indigenous Australians to create social change.

Bond University student Rekisha Satour will emcee the night with Jeremy Donovan and share her story of moving from her community in Darwin to Western Australia for her secondary education, before shifting across the country to the Gold Coast.
