Homeground talks giveaway

Win a double pass to “Homeground Talks” at Sydney Opera House on 27 May

The location of Sydney Opera House, Bennelong Point, was once known as Tubowgle and was a meeting place for the Gadigal people for thousands of years. So it’s the perfect location for the inaugural Homeground Talks on 27 May.

The talks will feature influential artists, leaders and academics including Marcia Langton AM, musician David Bridie, Rosalie Kuinoth-Monks OAM and Maori activist Tame Iti debating economic opportunity and sovereignty for Indigenous People.

Session 1, Unfinished Paperwork: Recognition and Sovereignty, will expore what the 1967 national referendum meant – and continues to mean for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. 

And in session 2, Open for Business: Diverse economies in first nation communities, David Bridie, John Faunt, Marcia Langton and Amelia Telford will present their arguments for less-publicised economies. 

Sydney Opera House Head of Indigenous Programming, Rhoda Roberts, says, “Homeground Talks is a platform where honest, robust opinions can be shared from the First Nations community in Australia and the Asia Pacific.

The Sydney Opera House is the perfect setting for diverse voices to be heard in a contemporary conversation that matters to all Australians. We hope it will become a highlight of the Indigenous Program at the Sydney Opera House…”
