Raising the Voice to Parliament
The Voice to Parliament is a watershed moment for First Nations people. Offering a pathway to constitutional recognition and a mechanism to enact real change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, the Voice will be proposed in a national referendum due by 2025.
But what does the Voice mean and what will it look like? What are the forms of support and dissent espoused within First Nations communities? And with only eight of the past 44 national referendums garnering enough support to enact constitutional change, what will be required to make it a reality?
In this 2022 Spring Fling event presented in partnership with Blak & Bright and featuring lawyer Teela Reid, co-chair of the senior design group for the Voice Professor Marcia Langton and hosted by writer and creative Ben Abbatangelo, find out what form the Voice might take, what it represents to First Nations communities, and what its impact would be on the ground.
