Four years on from the Uluru Statement from the Heart, important questions remain. How can we begin to imagine a better future without full recognition of the past? And how can this reckoning take place in an era of quick assumptions and divides, alternative facts and cancellations? Join three thought-provoking contributors to Griffith Review 76: Acts of Reckoning for a timely and wide-ranging discussion of the multifaceted issues at play in Australia’s journey towards reconciliation.
