On 3 April 2018, Melbourne’s 35th Annual Green Room Awards were awarded across the theatre, music theatre, dance and opera sectors in Melbourne. We were grateful to receive an award for Curatorial Contribution in the Contemporary and Experimental Performance category. We would like to thank all who we have worked with, and congratulate all the award winners on the night. Below, you can read YIRRAMBOI Creative Director, Jacob Boehme’s speech.
“On behalf of the YIRRAMBOI Elders Council, the team, all the artists we work with from around the world and all of our partners, thank you for this award. And thank you also, for recognising that when we, as First peoples, are given the power, authority and autonomy to be the authors of our own future, that brilliant things do happen.”
