Stan Dryden

Stan Dryden (Yarramunua) is passionate about Aboriginal culture. Throughout his life, he has
worked to raise awareness of his culture with painting, art and craft making, story-telling,
didgeridoo performing, traditional dancing, acting, clothing design, public speaking and healing. An entrepreneur and humanitarian, he is the founder of the Yarramunua Foundation for disadvantaged children.

As the owner of Art Yarramunua, a prominent Indigenous art gallery in St Kilda, his aim has
