An Aboriginal Australian arts, entertainment, and tech professional now based in the US, Sam Cook is a cross-artform practitioner, educator, arts manager, and leader in Indigenous Arts. Join the Fowler in welcoming Cook who will share her work that supports increased access to international markets for Aboriginal artists, including the recent launch of Virtual Girringun, “the new Aboriginal Art Centre experience.” This new platform enables Aboriginal artists from nine Traditional Owner Groups in the Far North of Australia to maintain their autonomy and participate in the global economy while their borders with the outside world are restricted.

Sam Cook is a retired musician, playwright, writer, visual artist, graphic designer, and head of The KMBA Creative Agency. A recipient of the UK Arts Council Fellowship in 2007 and 2011, she was the founding Aboriginal columnist for Artshub and Tracker; founder of Australia’s Blak History Month, #SOSBLAKAUSTRALIA, and Festivillian; and co-founder of Kaltja (pronounced Culture). Cook is currently a member of the First Nations Independent Arts Alliance, Artivist Entertainment, International Association of Blacks In Dance, and Australians in Music. She is also launching the United Stages Collective, the first Aboriginal Australian-led creative ensemble in the US.

Lunch & Learn: The Fowler’s Lunch & Learn series offers easily digestible explorations of charismatic objects from around the world. Join us to chew on some sustenance and feed your mind and soul.
