Biographical Text

For more than a decade, Damien Curtis (Venezuela/Australia) has worked on the interface between environmental conservation and indigenous rights, both on the ground and with larger organisations such as UNESCO and The Gaia Foundation. He has worked with indigenous groups in the Amazon, the Guiana Shield and various parts of Africa, to help them assert their land and cultural rights. In 2007 and 2008, as Green Man Arts, Damien was invited to curate and produce the Green Man Stage, which showcased music from around the world combined with inspirational speakers on protecting and celebrating the earth’s cultural and biological diversity. In 2009, he moved to Australia, where he continues to be deeply committed to inspiring social change with respect to indigenous rights and environmental protection.
