Event description

Description

The Faculty of Arts at the University of Melbourne is pleased to invite you to the official launch of the Indigenous Settler Relations Collaboration (ISRC). The launch will take place from 6pm on Monday 3 December, and will be a chance to meet the Collaborators, hear from some of our supporters, and learn about the exciting work the research unit is undertaking.

About:

The ISRC is exploring the challenges that lie at the heart of relations between Indigenous and settler Australians. In the wake of government rejection of the Statement from the Heart, the ISRC looks to expand public and official understanding of these challenges, and explore what might inform, shape and give life to more just relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. You can find out more about our work here.

The event:

Speakers at the event will include:

Jill Gallagher AO, Victorian Treaty Advancement Commissioner

Sheryl Lightfoot, Senior Advisor to the President on Indigenous Affairs, Canada Research Chair in Global Indigenous Rights and Politics, First Nations and Indigenous Studies at the University of British Columbia

Denise Varney, Acting Dean of the Faculty of Arts, Professor of Theatre Studies and co-director of the Australian Centre in the School of Culture and Communication at The University of Melbourne.

Our co-directors Sarah Maddison and Sana Nakata.

Drinks and canapes will be served.
