Forum Overview

Victoria has a long history of strong activism from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people fighting for their rights; with several recent developments around Treaty, Statement of the Heart and Self-Determination in Victoria. Join us to unpack what these developments mean in the midst of ongoing injustice, what this means for reconciliation work in Victoria, how we define reconciliation and create systemic change.

This event will feature a Welcome to Country, live entertainment from Wurundjeri woman Chenile Chandler, and a panel discussion (with time for Q&A) featuring speakers with a range of views on the forum theme.

Reconciliation Victoria and ANTaR Victoria will also hold their respective AGMs. Lunch and afternoon tea provided. A full program of the day is available for download here.

This is a free event but reserve your tickets now to avoid disappointment. Tickets are available here.

We’re excited to announce proud, young Wurundjeri woman Chenile Chandler will be performing at our upcoming AGM and Forum. As Aunty Joy Murphy’s granddaughter, Chenile has been immersed in her culture from a very young age and has started writing new music in Woiwurrung language with a modern twist.

Chenile has performed traditional song and dance at large scale events including the AFL Grand Final and Dreamtime matches, the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony and for Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary of Denmark.

We respectfully acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the lands and waters of Victoria.
