Born in 1976, Dale Austin is an artist in painting and carving. He was born in the Australian Capital Territory in 1976. His father was a survivor of the stolen generations and the continuation of handing down culture was broken.
Region: South Alligator
Dale has spent many years of his life retracing those steps and learning the stories of his ancestors to be able to share this knowledge with the future generations.
In recent years Dale has taken his art practice to the area of children’s services. He has worked with young people who come into contact with the Northern Territory’s children’s welfare services, inspiring them to reconnect with their ancestry and feel confident in their identity.
