Voice, Treaty, Truth - The Uluru Statement From The Heart
Join Sean Gordon, Jackie Huggins and John Maynard in the Harold Lobb Concert Hall for an exclusive panel discussion about the 2019 NAIDOC week themes: Voice, Treaty, Truth, and The Uluru Statement from the Heart. The panel will be chaired by Jill Emberson, local journalist and Newcastle's Citizen of the Year for 2019.
The Uluru Statement was delivered to the Australian people in May 2017 and now enjoys bi-partisan support from both major political parties. It was not delivered to politicians; it was delivered to the Australian people. You can read it by clicking on this link: [here]. But what do the Uluru Statement’s calls for Voice, Treaty, and Truth mean?
This event is a unique opportunity to hear from eminent members of the Newcastle community about how the Uluru Statement from the Heart could deliver reconciliation between Indigenous and other Australians. The evening will also feature a short film by Arrente filmmaker Rachel Perkins about calls for the empowerment of Indigenous peoples.
