50 Years and Counting: Keynote speech by Dr Chelsea Bond


The 1967 Referendum changed the Australian constitution, with record breaking ‘yes’ vote to count Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the census for the first time. On the 50th anniversary of the Referendum, join us at SLQ to reflect on its historic and contemporary significance, enjoy inspired talks, and engage in lively conversation.

Dr Chelsea Bond is a Munanjali and South Sea Islander woman and Senior Lecturer at the University of Queensland’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies Unit and an affiliate member of UQ Poche Centre for Indigenous Health. Chelsea has almost 20 years’ experience working to improve Indigenous health in the south east Queensland region as a community health worker and health researcher.
