Blak & Bright: Change the Date? A Hypothetical

The Wheeler Centre

Event Date: 
5 September 2019
Author / Presenters: 
Nayuka Gorrie, Yvette Holt, Gregory Phillips, Liza-Mare Syron, and Jason Tamiru

Blaktivists vs Blakademics argue the toss. Should Australia Day happen on 26 January, or not – and why? It's a serious topic, but we’ve thrown in a dollop of Blak humour. Hear from Nayuka Gorrie, Yvette Holt, Liza-Mare Syron and Jason Tamiru. Hosted by Gregory Phillips.

This event is presented in partnership with Blak & Bright First Nations Literary Festival and Melbourne Writers Festival.
