Leah Avene

Leah Avene is a Tuvaluan mother, musician, broadcaster and educator whose work focuses on personal, relational and collective decolonising.

Story telling and narrative healing inform Leah’s writing, public speaking and therapy work, as a powerful way of reclaiming identity, healing trauma and resisting the dominant culture.

Leah’s work aims to scrutinize and dismantle colonised culture whilst also celebrating the resilience and strength of first nations communities and people of colour who survive.

Leah is the co presenter of ALL OUR STORIES on PBSfm. She performs music as Philemon.
