A civic conversation jointly hosted by the Institute for Culture and Society and the Whitlam Institute

This seminar is offered as an opportunity for civic conversation about the 'Uluru Statement from the Heart': its roots, significance, and the implications of First Peoples' assertion of their ancient sovereignty, and desire for constitutional reform that recognises their rightful place in this country.

The First Nations Peoples in the Uluru Statement chose not to address themselves directly to the Government nor even to the Parliament but to their fellow citizens: 'We invite you to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future'.

This conversation seeks to accept that invitation in this small way.

Aunty Mae Robinson will be offering the Acknowledgement to Country.

Teela Reid is a proud Wiradjuri and Wailwan woman born and raised in Central Western NSW, where she grew up in her home community of Gilgandra. She is a lawyer, currently working with the Legal Aid Commission of NSW.

Geoff Scott is currently CEO of the Darkinjung Local Aboriginal Land Council and was CEO of the Referendum Council. He is a Wiradjuri man from Narromine in NSW with more than thirty years' experience working in Aboriginal Affairs. Geoff has held senior executive positions including CEO NSW Aboriginal Land Council, Director General NSW Department of Aboriginal Affairs, Deputy CEO Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission.

Karen Mundine is CEO of Reconciliation Australia. She is from the Bunjalung Nation of Northern NSW. Over the course of her career she has been instrumental in some of Australia's watershed national events including the Apology to the Stolen Generations, Corroborree 2000 and the 1997 Australian Reconciliation Convention.

Tim Rowse is Emeritus Professor with ICS. Although much of what he writes can best be described as History, his formal training has been in Government, Sociology and Anthropology. Since the early 1980s, his research has focused on the relationships between Indigenous and other Australians in Central Australia and in the national political sphere. His most recent book is Indigenous and Other Australians since 1901.

Moderator: Adjunct Professor Eric Sidoti, ex Director of the Whitlam Institute now a member of the Institute for Culture and Society.
