The Australian Constitution distributes power, but it says nothing in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. How might recognition empower the First Nations to take their rightful place in Australia’s constitutional arrangements? And what about a treaty? Shireen Morris draws on her expertise as a lawyer, constitutional reform fellow and editor of A Rightful Place: A Road Map to Recognition to explore Indigenous constitutional recognition, the Uluru Statement From the Heart and creating an Australia that is fair for all Australians. Morris will be joined in conversation by Jill Gallagher.
Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 21 July. This session is not able to be booked on a Festival Pass.
