Event description

Back due to popular demand are our Lunchtime Forum series will be running across the State during National Reconciliation Week.

Tickets are very affordable, bring your lunch so it doesn’t cut into school or work hours, and listen to Aboriginal community speakers discuss current issues and topics including the 2023 Referendum for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to Parliament
