Hear from gifted author, artist, storyteller and musician
Gregg Dreise uses music and laughter to take audiences on a story telling journey – that maybe… just maybe… might sneak in a lesson or two.
In addition to his career as an author, musician and entertainer Gregg is a guest presenter on ABC’s Play School and on Mugu Kids on NITV. He designed the Indigenous Jersey for the QLD Maroons 2019, plus the QLD Murris all Indigenous NRL team jersey. He also created all of the Aboriginal Art in the Sets of the reality TV show I’m A Celebrity – Get Me Outta Here Australia.
As a descendant of the Kamilaroi and Euahlayi people of south-west Queensland and north-west New South Wales his storytelling addresses self-image, friendship, kindness, bullying and indigenous culture.
In this interview, our host will speak with Gregg about his career, his storytelling, his inspirations, his connections to First Nations culture and his approach to creativity. Gregg always aims to educate an audience filled with smiles.
