Gerry Moore appointed director of Bundanon Trust

Callan Morse -

Proud Yuin man, Uncle Gerry Moore OAM, has been appointed a director of the Bundanon Trust Board for a three-year term.

Located on the New South Wales south coast, Bundanon Trust is an Australian cultural institution and living arts centre that supports the arts through its residency, education, exhibition and performance programs.

Minister for the Arts, Tony Burke, said Uncle Gerry's appointment will support Bundanon's commitment to working with First Nations communities and strengthening the connection to the natural environment.

"Bundanon is such a special place with strong links to culture, land and country. It's vital we protect and support that," Mr Burke said.

"I know Uncle Gerry's perspective will be invaluable and look forward to this appointment strengthening the future of Bundanon."

Hailing from Wreck Bay on the south coast of New South Wales, Uncle Gerry is highly engaged with Bundanon, working to strengthen local community connections.

He enters the position of Bundanon Trust Board director possessing more than 40 years of experience Aboriginal affairs.

Positions he has previously held include chair of the Nowra Local Aboriginal Land Council and CEO of the Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care (SNAICC) – Australia's peak body representing the interests of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and their families.

Uncle Gerry's previous experience also includes CEO of the Aboriginal Legal Service New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory.

His service to the Indigenous community was recognised in 2020, where his Indigenous advocacy was recognised with a Medal of the Order of Australia.

A wildlife sanctuary set on 1000 acres on the NSW south coast near Nowra, the Bundanon collection and properties were gifted in trust to the Commonwealth in 1993 by renowned Australian artist Arthur Boyd and his wife Yvonne.

Uncle Gerry is joined by Samuel Edwards, Philip Bacon AO, Holly Byrne, Professor Patricia M Davidson, Anne Flanagan, Jasmin Shahin, John Sharp AM, Ezekiel Solomon and Courtney West on the Bundanon Trust Board.
