Who’s afraid of the Constitution?

Posted on Jul 24, 2015

Politics in the Pub is back with a fired-up panel on a big topic; the constitutional recognition of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In this Q&A-style event panellists will discuss the best way forward for Australia to officially recognise its First Nations and will take questions from the audience. Expert panellists include writer and activist Sam Watson, Andrew Bartlett (ANTaR Qld), journalist Amy McQuire, Mark Yettica-Paulson (Recognise), constitutional lawyer Associate Professor Jonathan Crowe and Boe Spearim from the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy.

The New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, a program of Communify Queensland, has been hosting Politics in the Pub events for 15 years. Each event offers a different topic which all members of the community can engage in, debate and discuss.

“Who’s Afraid of the Constitution: Recognising Australia’s Indigenous Peoples” will be held on Wednesday August 19 from 6-8pm at the Brisbane Powerhouse’s Turbine Platform, New Farm. It’s a free event and everyone is welcome and encouraged to attend.
