Australian National Maritime Museum Council reappointment

The Albanese Government has today announced the reappointment of Ms Alison Page as a member of the Council of the Australian National Maritime Museum.

Ms Page is an award-winning designer and film producer whose career spans more than twenty-five years.

A Walbanga and Wadi Wadi woman of the Yuin nation, Ms Page’s work has centred on linking First Nations stories and traditional knowledge with contemporary design.

This will be Ms Page’s third term on the Council where she has been a member since 2017. 

Ms Page currently serves on the Board of the Sydney Harbour Federation Trust, the Board of the Art Gallery of South Australia, the Board of Aboriginal Hostels Ltd and the National Australia Day Council Board.

She was until recently the Chairperson of the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence and previously served on the Expert Panel for Constitutional Recognition of Indigenous Peoples.

Ms Page is also a member of the National Museum of Australia’s Indigenous Reference Group.

In 2015, her significant contributions to the design industry were recognised with her induction into the Design Institute of Australia’s Hall of Fame.

Minister for the Arts, Tony Burke, welcomed Ms Page’s reappointment.

“Our national cultural institutions tell the story of who we are. It’s critical we secure their future with strong leadership.

“I look forward to Alison continuing to bring her knowledge and experience to the Australian National Maritime Museum.”
