Hosted by The Australian National University together with our partner universities, this special livestreamed event will connect students and the general public from across Australia for an in-depth dialogue, covering diverse perspectives regarding the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice Referendum.

The main in-person event will be held on Ngambri and Ngunnawal land, Llewellyn Hall at ANU in Canberra, in front of an audience of local students and members of the general public.

The Dialogue features a special panel, moderated by Professor Mark Kenny, and will cover key issues and points of contention relating to the Voice and respond directly to questions from students. Our special panel includes:

  • Sally Scales - Partnership Manager, Uluru Statement from the Heart
