2020 Nulungu Reconciliation Lecture: ‘The Rush to Utopia: Australian Priorities and Reconciliation’

Broome 10 Dec 2020

Date: Thursday 10th December 2020
Venue: UNDA Hall NDB10/101
Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm (Reception Services 7:10pm)

Today’s world can be a demanding and confusing one where, on the one hand we are attempting to live financially and materially comfortable lives, while, on the other hand, trying to maintain personal values that don’t necessarily match that of a progressive lifestyle brimming with technology, and its spin-offs, such as social media.  Living in a globally fast-paced life, can mean we are so driven towards reaching an imagined world that we forget about what really matters and that is, each other.

In such a self-focused world, how then do we live meaningful lives where we care about what happens to those who are struggling; those whose voices are not heard; those who are treated differently because of the color of their skin, the culture they embrace and the way they live their everyday lives?  How do we support those who have experienced trauma spanning generations, where the valuing of Aboriginal people and culture are not always a priority? Such questions exists in Australia where the important work of reconciliation continues but where it can be lost as we race towards an imaginary place, where success and fulfilment is thought to be found.

Due to COVID-19 precautions the maximum capacity is 100 people for this event, so please ensure you RSVP by Thursday 3rd December

Presenter: Dr Lynette Henderson-Yates (Chief Executive Officer, Derby Aboriginal Health Service Council)
