To recognise National Reconciliation Week, MCM would like to invite the Victorian community to a free online conversation with Senior Wurundjeri elder Aunty Joy Murphy Wandin AO and opera singer, academic and filmmaker Tiriki Onus.
Date: Monday 30 May 2022
Via Zoom - To join, please register your attendance via Eventbrite. (Attendance is free)
Hosted by MCM CEO Vicki Sutton, the panel will discuss this year’s Reconciliation Week theme: Be Brave. Make Change.
