On World Suicide Prevention Day September 10th, The Westerman Jilya Institute will host a fundraising concert for Indigenous suicide prevention featuring a star-studded lineup of Indigenous artists, with special guest John Butler.
Jilya means ‘my child’ in Nyamal: for this is about our children; to provide a world in which our most vulnerable Indigenous children have at least an equal opportunity to thrive. All funds raised will go towards The Westerman Jilya Institute, which advances, supports and mentors Indigenous psychologists for Australia’s highest-risk communities.
The Concert will feature top Indigenous artists Gina Williams AM and Guy Ghouse, Kobi Morrison, Bojesse Pigram and Naomi Pigram, and will be headlined by a special guest: internationally renowned, ARIA-award winning musician and songwriter John Butler.
The Concert will be held on Friday September 10th at Winthrop Hall at the University of Western Australia, Perth. The concert aims to raise $175,500 through a donor initiated online auction; sponsors and ticket sales. One scholarship is $11,700 and we are aiming to fund 15 this year to add to the existing 15.
