The Green Room Awards Association is thrilled to welcome our new Patron, the inimitable Uncle Jack Charles.
Uncle Jack Charles is an actor, musician, potter and gifted performer, but in his 76 years he has also been homeless, a heroin addict, a thief and a regular in Victoria’s prisons. A member of the Stolen Generation, Uncle Jack co-founded the first Aboriginal theatre company Nindethana in 1972. His awards include the prestigious Tudawali Award, honouring his lifetime contribution to Indigenous media, a Green Room Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014 and most recently, the Ochre Award.
The Green Room Awards would like to warmly thank our outgoing Patron, the wonderful Julia Zemiro. Thank you Julia, for your years of support and advocacy for Victoria’s vibrant performing arts sector.
