A female led panel

at the @Metropolis_2018 conference with the brilliant Jackie Huggins, Nova Peris, Antoinette Braybrook@NyadolNyuon, and Uieta Kaufusi

We shared a powerful dialogue about Indigenous and CALD women’s intercultural and intersectional experiences on reconciliation and collaboration. Stand out comment from Nova, was ‘we were never lost, but your (Australian) constitution wants to find us on your terms’.

The need to call out injustices, share platforms, respect wisdom, check CALD privileges and collaborate respectfully emerged as essential pathways forward. Matriarchal figures have the potential to bring about challenges to structural racism and foster genuine social change.

Thanks to the brilliant Maria Dimopoulos for her expert and nuanced facilitation
