Now 85 years of age, Uncle Noel has boundless experiences and will reflect on moments that shaped not only his career in both London and Australia but the progression of Indigenous Arts in Australia. Hosted by Blak Betty.

The History Salon

A living encyclopaedia of Blak Arts in Australia

Our Elders created the opportunities we have today. We come from a 70,000+ year lineage of artists in this country, but we have very little written record of the heroes and mavericks that paved the way for Indigenous contemporary arts in Australia.

In honour of our traditions and ways of knowledge transfer, we gather, we listen and acknowledge the hard work that defined, inspired and transformed generations of Indigenous arts practice. The History Salon celebrates and shares stories from our Elders, informing new generations of their place in a long lineage of artistic practice.

Join radio personality Blak Betty in a dynamic yarn with an Elder of the arts.
