We share our great sadness at the news that today, 13 September 2022, Uncle Jack Charles passed after a short illness. 2022 has bought us yet more Sorry Business, having sent another treasured Elder on their final journey. Uncle Jack Charles was a Boon Wurrung, Dja Dja Wurrung, Woiwurrung and Yorta Yorta survivor of the Stolen Generations, which impacted so many aspects of his life, caused him great pain, but also provided him with an endless talent for humour, resilience and an artistic gift that inspired many.
