A time for telling Session 2: Knowledge and recognition


Australian South Sea Islanders have a unique identity and heritage that has been enriching Queensland’s cultural diversity for 150 years. 2013 marks a time for telling and sharing memories, stories, and ideas. Join in a compelling conversation with Australian South Sea Islanders about their remarkable history and contemporary identity.

Session 2: Knowledge and recognition explores the idea of a ‘response’ and through knowing and recognising the injustices suffered by Australian South Sea Islanders. How does Queensland as a contemporary community respond? What does recognition mean and where will it lead us?
