SAFC farewells Lee-Ann Buckskin
20 August 2021
The SAFC bids a fond farewell to Lee-Ann Tjunypa Buckskin, who finished as the SAFC’s First Nations Screen Strategy Executive today after six years in the role.
Lee-Ann provided the vision for the SAFC’s first Aboriginal Screen Strategy in 2015, and subsequent First Nations Screen Strategy launched last year, and has been a driving force behind the agency’s Reconciliation Action Plans and Centralised First Nations support and development initiative. She has also played an important role in the management of the SAFC’s First Nations Working Group and First Nations Advisory Committee.
SAFC CEO Kate Croser said Lee-Ann would be sorely missed.
“Over her six years with the SAFC Lee-Ann has played a pivotal role in shaping the direction and strategy for South Australia’s First Nations screen sector, and has enriched our organisation with her wealth of experience and deep cultural knowledge,” she said.
“The SAFC is committed to growing and investing in First Nations practitioners and supporting their stories on screen, and will continue to build on the strong foundation that Lee-Ann has helped to establish.
“Lee-Ann has been an invaluable member of the SAFC team, and on behalf of the entire staff I thank her for her contribution not only to the agency but to South Australia’s screen sector as a whole, and wish her well for the future.”
