Has Queensland become 'too PC'?
As SLQ continues to explores the theme of Belonging in 2016, the Queenslanders in Conversation talk series opens discussions across the state on issues that impact individual and collective identities and our sense of belonging to family, communities and our state.
This November, Queensland celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld) and the significant impact the Act and its principles have had on inclusiveness for individuals and communities across Queensland.
Host Kelly Higgins-Devine will facilitate a conversation between high profile panellists, audience members and online viewers exploring the contribution and limitation of civil liberties and the social, legal and cultural mechanisms in place to promote belonging in Queensland.
The interactive format of the conversation will allow alternative voices to be heard and stories to be shared.
Meet the Panel:
- Kevin Cocks, Anti-Discrimination Commissioner
- James Allan Garrick, Professor of Law at University of Queensland
- Anita Goon Wymarra, editor of Aboriginal magazine The Black Rising and with a background in Law and Criminology.
- Harriet Smith, Masters of Economics Student at Queensland University of Technology
Date: Thursday 17th November
Where: SLQ Auditorium 1, level 2 | Free
