Meriam (Erub)

Sheree is a Torres Strait Islander woman, born in Cairns, Far North Queensland with family and ancestral links to Erub Island in the Torres Strait. Sheree has worked for a number of regional and international not-for-profit organisations delivering programs, to support social impact and outcomes.

Sheree possesses postgraduate qualifications in Communications, from Griffith University.  Her roles in Design, Marketing and Communications encompasses supporting First Nations storytelling and digital and print works for government and non-government organisations. 

“Art and design can tell stories in ways that can be understood universally. Sometimes words are not enough. Art and design is something that can reach and move people, communicate ideas and thoughts in new ways

Being a mentor at IndigeDesignLabs is important because its supporting the next generation of digital designers and creative professionals. Compared with my everyday work, IndigeDesign Labs allows me to collaborate and share ideas with our program’s mentors and young people. I hope to mentor young people in both design and communications.”
