In Conversation: Sarah Maddison and Professor Colleen Hayward AM

Come along for a fascinating in-conversation event with Sarah Maddison, the author of Colonial Fantasy, and Professor Colleen Hayward AM, senior Noongar woman.

The two will discuss how settler colonial Australia has continued to wreak havoc on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to this day. Government policies and programs have fallen short of making a truly positive difference in the lives of Indigenous Australians, and both women are not afraid to tackle the bigger questions of policy reinvention and Aboriginal-Australian autonomy.
