Dr Richard Walley

Dr Richard Walley
Dr Richard Walley OAM is a Nyoongar man, one of Australia's leading Aboriginal performers, musicians and writers, who has been a campaigner for the Indigenous cause. Richard is a fluent speaker of the Nyungar language and his Welcome to Country is the perfect way to acknowledge the traditional custodians of our land at any Corporate event.

In 1978, Dr Richard Walley founded the Middar Aboriginal Theatre with three friends, including Ernie Dingo, who he had met playing basketball. Aiming to take the Nyoongar culture from the south-west corner of Australia to as many people as possible, the Middar group went on to perform in 32 countries, to live audiences totalling almost ten million people.

Acting in theatre and TV, Richard is also a renowned didgeridoo player. In 2001 he performed in Westminster Abbey for dignitaries, including Queen Elizabeth II, as part Australia's Centenary of Federation celebrations. In the same year, he worked with Carlos Santana and contributed to the Opening Ceremony of the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games.

A role model for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people alike, Richard continues to push boundaries, continually developing personally whilst always focussed on the bigger ‘community’ picture of the Arts, Culture and Environment.
