Online and the Sir Stanley Burbury Lecture Theatre, Dobson Road, Sandy Bay, TAS 7004Summary:
Explore the Voice to Parliament Referendum with our commentators and experts at this free event.
As the referendum draws near, the debate surrounding it becomes increasingly complex.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart calls for treaty and truth. It proposes a Voice to Parliament as a pathway for our nation to forge new, more equitable relationships between First Peoples and those who arrived since colonisation. Will saying ‘yes’ to the referendum achieve this goal? If Australians vote ‘no’, what might the alternative paths to creating a more equitable relationship be?
Join two of Tasmania’s most experienced Aboriginal leaders as we critically consider the ideas and arguments that have formed the debate, and ask where the outcome of the Referendum will take us as a nation.
All are welcome to join us for complimentary refreshments from 5.30pm in the foyer. The event will start at 6.00pm.
Join this talk in-person, or online. Registrations are essential. To register for the in-person event, secure your spot through Eventbrite. To attend online, register via Zoom, and we'll email you details on how to join.
- Kerry Sculthorpe, Tasmanian Aboriginal leader
