National Talkblack 180321

We had:

Deline Briscoe, Director, Gaba Musik talking about the events ‘BLAKTIVISM’ and ‘PASIFIX’ which her and her business partner Airileke are artistically directing in Melbourne. For more info on ‘BLAKTIVISM’: For more info on ‘PASIFIX’:

Dr Scott Winch, World Vision’s First Nations Policy and Advisor talking about how COVID increased education gap for First Nations children. First Nations households are suffering a yawning “Digital Divide” with the rest of Australia, with a new report released on Closing the Gap Day showing one in four First Nations households has no internet access, limiting learning opportunities for Indigenous students. COVID-19 widened this gap over the last year, with school closures meaning that many First Nations students could not access the learning materials, teaching and support that their class peers could access online, the report finds.
