Namila Benson

Namila Benson is a broadcaster and educator who engages in robust and well-informed narratives that help decolonise past, present and future stories. For over two decades working as a broadcaster, TV presenter and producer, Benson continues to spark vital conversations that explore race, culture and identity politics – particularly within the context of settler communities navigating their place on stolen land. These days, Benson runs media and podcast training workshops across Melbourne and overseas, often mentoring young people from diverse backgrounds in the early stages of their broadcasting careers. Benson also travels across Narrm and beyond, with cherished activists and artists Uncle Jack Charles and Uncle Archie Roach – engaging communities in conversations about using the arts, your voice and creative expression as tools for healing, self-ownership and cultural empowerment.
