About this event

**POSTPONED - NEW DATE - SUNDAY 27TH MARCH 2022**

Due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, we have postponed the event to March 2022. While we could have proceeded with an online-only format this year, we have made the decision, in consultation with Noel Pearson, to postpone the Oration to a time when we can be more confident in our ability to host an in-person event.

The Oration will now be held at 4pm, Sunday 27th March 2022 in the Ormond College Dining Hall, while the online option will continue to be available.

Noel Pearson: The creation and perpetuation of the passive welfare underclass and the urgent need for a universal Job Guarantee

Welfare has long been touted as a route to greater equality, economic empowerment and social wellbeing. But does long-term income support actually do more harm than good?

Join distinguished lawyer, academic and activist Noel Pearson for this year’s Renate Kamener Oration, our annual fundraiser for the Renate Kamener Indigenous Scholarship. This year’s Oration will be held in the Dining Hall at Ormond College, with the option to attend virtually. All donations will go to ensuring more Indigenous students can achieve their tertiary education ambitions and call Ormond College home while studying at the University of Melbourne.

Guests attending in-person will be charged $30 for general admission or $15 for students, while the virtual option is free. Donations made beyond the ticket price are tax-deductible, with all proceeds from tickets and donations going towards the Renate Kamener Indigenous Scholarship.

Donations made via credit card will incur a merchant fee of 1.5%. If you wish to make your donation via bank transfer, visit the Ormond College event listing for details.

Please note: Tickets for the in-person event will be capped at 280 guests in order to comply with COVID-Safe density requirements. We encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment.

For more information visit the Renate Kamener website.

COVID-Safe Arrangements

In order to comply with COVID-Safe density requirements, the capacity of the Dining Hall will be capped at 280 seated guests. In the event that we need to reduce our capacity, tickets will be allocated on a 'first come, first serve' basis. Tickets which have already been sold beyond the reduced cap will be transferred to an online registration, and a donation receipt will be issued. We encourage you to book early to avoid disappointment in the event our capacity needs to be reduced.

In the event that the in-person component cannot go ahead, all tickets will be transferred to an online registration, and a donation receipt will be issued.

About the speaker

Noel Pearson is a lawyer, land rights activist and Director of the Cape York Institute for Policy and Leadership, an organisation promoting the economic and social development of Cape York in far north Queensland. He comes from the Guugu Yimidhirr community of Hope Vale on south eastern Cape York Peninsula, and is the primary architect of the Cape York Agenda, having played a pivotal role in the establishment of the Cape York Land Council in 1990. Noel has led a number of major reforms for Cape communities and has served as a member of the Expert Panel on Constitutional Recognition of Indigenous Australians and the Referendum Council.

About the scholarship

Inspired by Renate Kamener's committment to peace and social justice, the Kamener Family and the Australian Jewish Democratic Society set up a scholarship with Melbourne University's Ormond College, to help and encourage Indigenous students to achieve their tertiary education ambitions.

The Scholarship is possible through the partnership between the Kamener family, the Australian Jewish Democratic Society, and Ormond College.

The annual Oration is the main fund raising event, and the scholarship's continuity is a result of the efforts of the three groups above and the generosity and good will of their friends, families and associates.

The scholarship is fully maintained by volunteers, and so 100% of funds gets to the scholarship bursary.
