Who are the Mavericks of our time? Who do you see yourself represented in? 

The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) presents MAVERICKS OF STAGE & SCREEN, a truly unique Vivid Sydney event showcasing incredible stories about the importance of owning your narrative and carving a pathway to success. 

These present-day mavericks will share experiences and philosophies that have proved fundamental to their success. Prepare to be inspired as they share how they’ve used writing, performing, acting, and directing to make their voices heard.

Performers include multi award-winning actress, writer & director Leah Purcell, creative director of FOLK Magazine, playwright, performer & TEDx speaker, Moreblessing Maturure, stand-up comic and Utopia regular Nina Oyama, critically acclaimed playwright of Barbara and the Camp Dogs Alana Valentine, AACTA Award-winner and screenwriter of Lambs Of God Sarah Lambert, and One the Bear stage-show creator Candy Bowers. Hosted by stand-up comedian, radio presenter and one half of Netflix movie podcast The Big Film Buffet, Gen Fricker.


We invite you to celebrate their unconventional journeys and embrace the space they’ve created for themselves through a series of spoken word pieces and performances.
