We had:

Thomas McIntyre, Executive Director of Service Strategy & Growth Act for Kids, talking about how new research reveals sex education is failing to prepare Aussie kids. This Child Protection Week (4-10 September) Act for Kids wants every parent and carer to ‘Get Comfy’ discussing consent, and healthy relationships with their kids and for a strengthening of sex education programs in all Australian schools.

Adam Shipp, First Nations educator talking about new campaign to help kids have a Connection to Country. ‘What’s in your backyard’ campaign to encourage children to get into their backyard, onto their balcony, and explore their local environments to discover the amazing flora and fauna right on their doorstep.

Katina Davidson, Queensland Gallery of Modern Art Curator of Indigenous Australian Art, talking about Queensland’s Embodied Knowledge show exhibits diverse range of Indigenous artists. With a strong First Nation presence, the Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Arts’ recent Embodied Knowledge exhibition featured 19 artists from across Queensland highlighting issues of Indigenous artists, voices of women and LGBTQIA+ artists.
