A night of laughter with a living legend.
Join Uncle Jack Charles for an evening of truth, love, laughter and legendary storytelling. He will be interviewed by special guest, Namila Benson, ABC's Art Works' presenter. This national treasure, award-winning actor, Aboriginal elder and activist is here to share his colourful life and brilliant career in words and music.
Uncle Jack Charles is an actor, musician, potter and gifted performer, but in his 74 years he has also been homeless, a heroin addict, a thief and a regular in Victoria’s prisons. A member of the Stolen Generation, Jack has spent his life in-between acting gigs, caught in the ‘addiction/ crime/ doing time’ cycle. Today, overcoming these past struggles, Uncle Jack is here to share tales recently published in his 2019 biography Jack Charles: A Born-again Blakfella.
