Scott Rankin is co-founder, CEO and Creative Director of pioneering social change arts group BighART, and the 2018 Tasmanian Australian of the Year. BOFA is proud to present a BighART initiative, the film Namatjira Project.
Namatjira Project began as a collaboration between BighART, members of the Namatjira family and the Hermannsburg community in Central Australia in 2009. The film was part of a successful campaign to restore the Namatjiras’ cultural right to own their grandfather’s copyright. Scott Rankin will present a Q and A after the screening, talking about the project to restore the Namatjira family’s rights to Albert’s iconic paintings.
