SALT Studio Consultancy
Terori Hareko-Avaivilla is the founder and director of SALT Studio Consultancy, a First Nation business established originally as a platform for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander female artists to grow their brand within the First Nation visual art space. The consultancy half of the business was added later to combine Terori’s love of sharing her creative culture and education, providing traditional and cultural education through creative means to offer a deeper learning for the participants. Salt Studio Consultancy offers individuals and organisations the opportunity to build cultural understanding through the “8 ways of Knowing’ First Nations Cultural Knowledge Exchange Training, as well as running First Nation Leadership Training as part of local government Community Engagement programs. Terori comes from a strong Islander heritage from Papua New Guinean, Torres Strait Islanders (Saibai/Boigu) and Samoa. She has lived in Melbourne most of her adult life though her childhood was spent in many locations such as Arnhem Land, Vanuatu, Port Moresby and other South Pacific locations, travelling with her parents who were community development workers for AusAid.
"I believe my family, culture and community are three very important aspects of my decision to work within community development, social justice and health frameworks over the course of my professional and personal journey."
