Description


Sydney Law School, Faculty of Health Sciences, and the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at The University of Sydney invites you to the Annual University of Sydney NAIDOC Public Lecture.

Hear from a panel of exceptional Aboriginal women from The University of Sydney, and across NSW, showcasing the different ways in which Indigenous women have played - and continue to play - active and significant roles at the community, local, state and national levels.

Our speakers will include Kamilaroi astronomer, Karlie Noon, the social epidemiologist, Dr Vanessa Lee, award winning poet, Evelyn Araluen, and Nakari Thorpe, political reporter on NITV. The lecture will also feature a performance by the legendary blues singer, Aunty Marlene Cummins, Donna Ingram will give the Welcome to Country, and Rachel Durmush is the MC.

NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and achievements and is an opportunity to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our country and society.
