‘Reach Your Dreaming’ © Jeremy Donovan

Jeremy Donovan is a gifted artist and proud Kuku-Yalanji and Gumbaynggirr man from far North QLD and the Mid North Coast of NSW. 

As a true survivor of social and economic disadvantage, resulting in imprisonment, Jeremy strongly supports preventative, community-led initiatives that afford Aboriginal Australians an opportunity to become acknowledged, equipped and empowered. He gifted Reach Your Dreaming (pictured left) to the Momentum Program as it reflects a positive narrative of the concerted effort it takes to lay a strong foundation capable of building and maintaining momentum.
