We had:

June Riemer, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of First Peoples Disability Network (Australia) discussing how First Nations people with disability will tell the Disability Royal Commission about the structural violence they experience in the child-protection system around Australia.

Lily Shearer, Yellamundie Festival’s Creative Director talking about the Yellamundie Festival coming up in January 2021. Yellamundie Festival is the only Festival in Australia to identify, develop, and present new First Peoples stories for stage and has seen ten featured works go on to full production in Australia. Yellamundie is a Darug word meaning “storyteller”, and from 22-24 January 2021 for just $15, Sydneysiders can be the first to see brand-new developmental works and discover new First Peoples talent, from cutting-edge voices around the country.

Caroline Bradshaw, member of the Dhanggati Languiage Group under the Ngabu Bigayi Aboriginal Corporation talking about the release of the Dhanggati dictionary.
