WALKING ON COUNTRY - 28TH AUGUST

Winter Wild Festival - Weekend 2

WALKING ON COUNTRY

SUNDAY 28 AUGUST 10AM - Apollo Bay Community Hall

Panel Discussion. How do we walk together on Country to give voice to truth, healing and reconciliation? This year’s Reconciliation Week theme is 'Be Brave. Make Change'. Given all that has been lost, and all that has been taken, how do we bravely make the changes that are critically necessary to heal the land and its people? How do we approach the coming referendum on a Voice to Parliament with respect and trust, and fully value each other and our cultures? Join a panel of Indigenous leaders including Associate Professor Dr. Michael-Shawn Fletcher, a Wiradjuri man, paleo-ecologist and biogeographer, and Dr. Jack Pascoe, a Yuin man, ecologist and Research Manager at the Conservation Ecology Centre at Cape Otway, as they challenge us to open our hearts and minds and genuinely share this business of reconciliation and healing country. Facilitated by Richard Cornish. Includes morning tea.
