Event description

Back due to popular demand 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

MC of the event is Reconciliation Tasmania's Aboriginal Co-Chair Clair Andersen. Clair has Yanuwa and Gunggalida clan connections in the Gulf country of Northern Australia and is the Aboriginal Higher Education Advisor at UTAS. She grew up and began her education on Warumunga country in the Northern Territory before coming to Tasmania to completed high school and attend University.

Alison Overeem is a proud palawa woman from South East Tasmania. She is passionate about raising awareness of Aboriginal culture and history and the rights of women in society, being a past member of the Tasmanian Women’s Council.

With a diverse background in culture/arts/environmental/ social justice/ youth work and Indigenous Medicines Therapy, Ruth Langford divides her time into endeavors that reflect her passion for uniting ancient traditions and modern innovation in order to promote caring for that which sustains and invigorates life. Ruth draws upon the cultural knowledge of her Yorta Yorta mother and the Aboriginal Community of Tasmania where she was born and continues to live.

Duncan Robinson is a Tasmanian Aboriginal man currently researching looking into the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander student experience of schooling in Tasmania. His focus is on how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students experience Indigenous content and how cultural safety is enacted within educational spaces. His research uses Indigenous methods to share how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students experience content that involves their histories.
