Cormach Evans On Creating Space For Aboriginal Excellence, On TDF Talks
Cormach Evans has dedicated his life to creating spaces that nurture Indigenous excellence. The Yorta Yorta man and community leader has founded two organisations supporting First Nations individuals and communities – Strong Brother Strong Sister, a culturally appropriate safe place for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people, and Ngarrimili, a not-for-profit charity that provides Indigenous-owned businesses, creatives and entrepreneurs with support to establish and grow their ventures. You might also recognise him from the story we did with him and his gorgeous family last year!
In our final TDF Talks podcasts conversation for 2021, Cormach chats with our host Lucy Feagins about how his own upbringing motivated his life’s work, the importance of culture and community and how it affects every aspect of our lives, and the need for more support frameworks that allow Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to thrive.
