Understanding The Voice to Parliament

The Belvoir Street Theatre in Sydney in partnership with the Biennale of Sydney and Yes23 will host a free event to learn, discuss, and understand the Voice to Parliament.

They share, ‘during this event, we will delve into the significance of the Voice, the importance of formal recognition, and the journey toward truth-telling. We will explore the deep-rooted connection between art, culture, and the Voice, as well as the impact it can have on shaping a better future.’

Rachel Perkins and Narelda Jacobs OAM will be speaking, along with a panel of others to be announced soon. Perkins is a proud Arrente and Kalkadoon woman, Australian film and television director, producer, and screenwriter. Jacobs, of Whadjuk Noongar heritage, has been a Network Ten journalist since 2000, along with being a regular presenter for SBS and NITV.

The effort by the two creative organisations is explained in part because ‘First Nations artists and communities have shared their powerful stories on our stages, enriching our lives. We recognise the profound contributions of First Nations People to art, culture, and society, and we stand with them in their call for constitutional recognition.’

You can RSVP to the evening here. The event is to be held in person, but will also be shared online.

Date: Monday 14 August
Time: 6:30 to 8 pm
Address: Belvoir St Theatre, 25 Belvoir Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010
