Karen Mundine is a proud Bundjalung woman from Northern NSW. She is CEO of Reconciliation Australia and has a background of over 20 years’ experience in public advocacy, communications and social marketing.
Ceremony is at the heart of Aboriginal culture and Karen has always had a strong belief in the power of song and music to transform lives, break down barriers and unite people. Joining the Gondwana Choirs Board has given her the opportunity to apply her professional skills to her passions and to be a part of an inspiring arts organisation that nurtures the musical talent of today to become the artistic leaders of tomorrow.
Karen is particularly excited by the growth of the Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir and the opportunity for them to proudly share their stories and language with each other, their fellow choristers, other Australians, and the world. For Karen, this is reconciliation in action.
