As Australia moves closer to the generous offer from this continent’s First Peoples to walk together and forge change through dialogue, what might be possible when reconciliation between the world’s oldest continuing culture and one of its newest nation states is achieved? And what of other moments of Australian colonialism beyond this continent that still need to be reckoned with? Join Thomas Mayor, Jane Gleeson-White and Ashley Hay for this conversation about Australia’s past, present and future. Thomas Mayor will be appearing via videostream.
