David Vadiveloo is a multi-awarded Australian film-maker and human rights lawyer. In 2005 he was awarded the Australian Human Rights Commission Award for Individual Community Achievement for his work with Indigenous youth. He was also Highly Commended for the Human Rights Medal (Australia), recognising lifelong commitment and achievements in human rights.
Vadiveloo graduated in arts and law from Monash University and in Film and Television from the Victorian College of the Arts. He worked for several years in Alice Springs as a solicitor and barrister and spent two years at the Central Land Council where he worked on Native Title cases.
In 1998, Vadiveloo began a media training program at the Irrkerlantye Learning Centre in Alice Springs, working with Indigenous children and re-engaging them with schooling through media. This program led to partnerships with Arrernte families in the region and the production of his award-winning short film, BUSH BIKES (2001) and then the first Indigenous children's television series in Australia, US MOB (2005).
Vadiveloo is the founder and director of the media entertainment and social justice company Community Prophets. The company produces film and television and delivers digital media training programs for marginalised youth.
