FINALIST: Alicia Jones, Member, Gold Coast & Hinterland Historical Society Inc
Alicia is a cross-cultural Welsh-Tasmanian Indigenous woman and performance artist who has been closely associated with the museum over several years. As a successful Palawa Aboriginal woman in a competitive world, she is an inspiration, having traversed a long journey through varied and challenging careers.
Alicia’s Commonwealth Games affiliation brought to the museum a wide-ranging group of Indigenous performers, fashion designers and artists. Her ease with managing different personalities and political agendas is one of her strongest qualities and reflects her successes across the years and across careers.
