Hear from Bundjalung and Gumbaynggirr Elders as they share their stories of connection to Country, culture, and community in a free online event on Thursday 12 November.
Presented by Southern Cross University and Gnibi College of Indigenous Australian Peoples, in partnership with Lismore Regional Gallery, Thursday Night Live! is an ongoing talks program which puts thought-provoking and big ideas in the spotlight. Held on the second Thursday of the month, each event poses a provocation for speakers and audiences to respond to. The events are recorded and made available to the public.
Facilitated by Naomi Moran, a Nyangbal, Arakwal and Dunghutti woman, and General Manager of the Koori Mail, this month’s discussion will respond to the 2020 NAIDOC week theme of ‘Always was – always will be’ and the Black Lives Matter movement.
Creating a space for Indigenous voices to be heard, the panel of Elders will include Uncle Rob Bryant, Uncle Des Williams, Uncle Herb Roberts, Aunty Robyne Bancroft and Aunty Gwen Hickling, who are also members of the Southern Cross University Gnibi Elders Council.
Following the panel discussion there will be a Q&A session open to the audience so that they can also be a part of the conversation.
Thursday Night Live! will be livestreamed at 6pm ADST on Thursday 12 November via Zoom and Facebook.
