Empowering Marley's Dreams

Marley Holloway-Clarke’s story is one of inspiration and transformation. A proud recipient of the Rosemary Bishop Scholarship, Marley’s educational journey began with Yalari at Scotch Oakburn College in Launceston, Tasmania, setting her on a path that has taken her across the globe and deep into the heart of First Nations advocacy.

Marley’s adventure started with an opportunity—awarded a Yalari scholarship following her brother Tyson, she embraced the comprehensive educational experience at Scotch Oakburn College. The school, a member of the Round Square network, was her gateway to developing a global understanding and a commitment to service, leadership, and environmental stewardship.

From an early age, Marley engaged in Round Square’s international programs, traveling to Cambodia and Thailand at just 14 to participate in service-based activities and connect with students worldwide. These experiences enriched her understanding and spurred a lifelong commitment to social justice and community service.

Now, with a Bachelor in Fine Arts and Masters in Arts Management, Marley is the Marketing Lead at Common Ground, where she leverages her skills to amplify First Nations voices. Through multimedia storytelling, Marley and her team share powerful narratives that educate and inspire, bridging gaps between communities and fostering a deeper understanding of Indigenous cultures.

Marley’s work at Common Ground exemplifies the impact of nurturing Indigenous leaders through education. By bringing together traditional knowledge and modern platforms, she helps preserve and promote First Nations cultures, making significant strides towards reconciliation and cultural preservation.

Marley’s journey from a Yalari scholar to a cultural leader shows what is possible when potential is nurtured and opportunities are provided.
