Event description

Description

Thomas is a Torres Strait Islander man born and raised on Larrakia country in Darwin. From wharfie, to union official, to author, he is a tireless campaigner and signatory of the Uluru Statement From the Heart. He has journeyed around Australia with the Statement's sacred canvas in hand to garner support for a constitutionally enshrined First Nations voice, and a Makarrata Commission for truth-telling and treaties. His book Finding the Heart of the Nation has been shortlisted for an Indie Book Award 2020.

Thomas will be in conversation with Elijah Bravington. Elijah is an Arabunna man living on Kaurna land, and a fellow signatory of the Uluru Statement. Together they will discuss Thomas's book Finding the Heart of the Nation, the path to Reconciliation, and ways to support substantive constitutional change.

Copies of Finding the Heart of the Nation available for purchase and signing courtesy Shakespeare's Books.

Wine available to purchase courtesy Sourc'd Wine & Coffee Bar.

Opportunity to donate to Thomas Mayor's chosen charity CFS Foundation on the evening.
