Bianca Hunt is a Kamilaroi, Barkindji, Ballardong, Whadjuk women, business and creative Industries graduate, broadcaster and founder of AGNT BLAK. Here, she explains what prompted her to start her First Nations talent agency.

If you asked me when I was studying Business at University if I wanted to have my own business, I would’ve said no.

If you were to also ask me if I wanted a career in media, I would’ve said it was a definite no.

From my short career in media, most notably for my time on NITV x AFL Yokayi Footy, I have seen first hand how difficult it is to find agent representation that suited me.

Not only this, but growing up and understanding that in the media, we as First Nations people and our voices have been historically excluded on our screens, it didn’t seem like a clear career choice.

Fast forward a few years and here I am, starting an agency exclusively representing people just like me–Blak, talented and underpaid.

Having worked across many different industries from corporate to non-profit to now being in the media, my knowledge and experience at times has been taken for granted. Something that is common for a lot of Blak Talent across the country.

This is where AGNT BLAK comes in, launching 14th July, where our aim is to provide a safe environment for First Nations Talent to thrive in mainstream spaces and entertainment industries.

Talent will range from Media Personalities to Speakers and with the newest addition to society, Influencers.

Joining me as talent at AGNT BLAK are NITV’s Grayson McCarthy-Grogan, Trading Blak’s Jarin Baigent, Deadly Choices Radio Shen’e Clemments, TikToker Tallulah Brown and 2021 WA Young Person of the Year Derek Nannup.
