Jocelyn Dhu

Member Director

Since 2012 Jocelyn has been the outreach coordinator for the Drug and Alcohol Services Association (DASA) in Alice Springs and brings with her a great deal of experience working in the community to reduce the harmful effects of substance abuse.
Born and raised in Alice Springs, Jocelyn’s family background is as an Eastern Arrernte woman from Alice Springs on her mother’s side and a Banyjima woman from Western Australia on her father’s side.

A former video producer with CAAMA, Michael is an executive on the Central Land Council and is employed by Desert Knowledge Australia as an intercultural engagement manager. Much of his work involves creating positive behavioural changes in men.

Michael is acutely aware of the damage alcohol can do to family structures and says, ‘without family structures it is very hard to keep control of Aboriginal law’.

An Alyawarre man with Arrernte ties, Michael has extensive experience working with issues that impact the lives of Aboriginal people.
