Balit Liwurruk: Strong Girl Nominated for 6 Green Room Awards!

Congratulations to the whole team that worked on Balit Liwurruk: Strong Girl, which was recently nominated for SIX Green Room Awards.

Balit Liwurruk: Strong Girl is a contemporary and poetic take on culture and the ways we find the inner strength to stand on the shoulders of previous generations and reach into the unknown.

Beginning development in 2017, St Martins and Worawa Aboriginal College set out to produce a project that overturns common assumptions about First Nations’ girls.

In September 2019, the project came to fruition in the Irene Mitchell Studio.

"Balit Liwurruk: Strong Girl was an education in listening, absorbing, and celebrating the strength, beauty and diversity of community that was represented in these young Aboriginal women. They are the pride and future of Australia."
