National Talkblack 181021

We had:

Neville Williams Boney, Wiradjuri man from Wagga Wagga, Independent Artist and Co Founder of Lost All Sorts Collective and 2018 NAISDA graduate, talking about promoting awareness and interest amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 16-26 in applying for the 2021 auditions.

Marietta Martinovic, Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Justice at RMIT University talking about home quarantine and tourism. She talks abouut Australia’s planned national home quarantine program abd what traveller hesitancy could mean for the tourism industry. “Home quarantine will be possible for fully vaccinated returned travellers with a working smartphone. “They must download the government’s home quarantine app, which uses geolocation and facial recognition software to check the location of those isolating. The app contacts returned travellers at random, asking them to show proof of their location within 15 minutes. If the location cannot be identified, police conduct an in-person check.
