Registrations are now open for Inside Out: new actions for change by First Australians, a forum of powerful ideas that will explore social and political change in Australia.

Canberra will host the Inside Out forum on July 10 and 11 as part of the Centenary of Canberra Indigenous Cultural Program.

The two-day forum will feature critical thinkers from Australia and New Zealand discussinghow the First Australian change-makers of today work from inside the political structures that once kept them out.

The program also includes a session at the Tent Embassy, featuring the only surviving cofounder, Michael Anderson, to highlight the significant role it has played in bringing the plight of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s rights and living conditions to the attention of the Commonwealth government of the day.

Prominent campaigners Jackie Huggins, and Getano Lui will also feature and will be joined by award-winning author Kim Scott, artists Adam Hill and Julie Gough, and media experts Dot West, Kirstie Parker and Luke Pearson.
