Truth and Reconciliation: Three Historical Journeys

29 May @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm AEST

Australians are increasingly embracing an open-hearted process of reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. History and historians are central to how we discover and give voice to often-difficult truths from the past.

Acknowledging painful histories and seeking ways forward together are at the core of reconciliation, as many societies around the world have found. This panel discussion outlines three different journeys of reconciliation: in Germany, New Zealand and Australia. The panellists will ask how we can learn from these stories to shape the best possible future in our own country.

Hosted on the bamal (lands) and badu (waters) of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, this session is open to all. The panel will be led by Matt Poll, Manager of Indigenous Programs at the Australian National Maritime Museum.
