'Genevieve Grieves has a diverse background in Indigenous history, film and television...Genevieve's family is from the Worimi Nation in mid-north coastal New South Wales. While still a student at the University of Technology in Sydney, she interviewed Darug elders about the Parramatta Native Institution, a school established in 1814 to "civilise, Christianise and educate" Aboriginal children, and her passion for oral history began.

Genevieve moved to Melbourne to work with the Koorie Heritage Trust as an oral historian, travelling around the state collecting stories for the Koorie Oral History project and assisting members of the Stolen Generation to connect with their lost culture and families. Using digital media to create an online archive, she next worked at the ABC to develop the Mission Voices website, before joining SBS as a field producer for the series First Australians. An accomplished filmmaker and media artist, Genevieve has also completed a creative fellowship at the State Library of Victoria and produced a documentary called Lani's Story.'
