Cherie Minniecon is a proud Yorta Yorta woman based in Naarm with her husband and two daughters. Cherie is a social worker, educator and futures strategist. She is passionate about the exploration of the narratives we tell ourselves about the future – and how they impact our sense of agency and ability to affect social change. She has a particular passion in exploring and providing platforms for First Nations perspectives globally, in relation to futures thinking and creating Indigenous futurisms.
Before becoming a parent, Cherie worked on international youth and peace projects in Australia and the Middle East. Locally, she worked on projects such as connection to country projects for Aboriginal children who had been removed from their families and placed in state care.
