Nicole Brown

Indigenous engagement consultant and social activist

2023 NT Local Hero Nominee

Proud Larrakia woman Nicole Brown is a social activist whose primary aim is to advance Australia’s First Nations peoples. This she does from her head and her heart.

Her diverse activities include investing in young leaders; facilitating safe spaces for people to come together; initiating purpose-led events; and speaking across the nation and the globe.

As a strong single mum, she has a particular desire to support marginalised groups such as Indigenous girls and wider Indigenous community. Her passionate advocacy and positive energy have been recognised through multiple awards including the 2022 City of Darwin Citizen of the Year and 2022 Darwin Community NAIDOC Volunteer of the Year.

The thread connecting Nicole’s initiatives is pride in her heritage and her desire to see her fellow first Australians thrive and prosper. By championing First Nations people and culture at every opportunity, Nicole is changing the narrative – and, ultimately, changing the future.
