Semah Mokak-Wischki is a Djugun woman from Broome, Western Australia. 

 

Semah is the Writer/Director of Through Our Eyes, a documentary which explores growing up Muslim and Aboriginal in remote Australia.

 

Semah is also a carer and parent to her adult son who has Cerebral Palsy and Autism. She is a disability advocate and has been actively involved in the Brisbane disability sector for many years, committed to ensuring people with disabilities are equal citizens. 

 

Semah’s emotive story of growing up both Muslim and Aboriginal, along with her unwavering commitment to the disability sector, inspired me to paint her portrait.
