First Nations people are the oldest storytellers in the world. Come with us as we take a deep dive into some of the most successful First Nations productions in recent years, hear from First Nations key creatives about how the modern telling of First Nations stories has evolved, in particular, with 2023 being the 30th anniversary of the First Nations department at Screen Australia. What outcomes has this achieved and how has the ABC been a significant force in the development and production of First Nations driven content.
