Reconciliation Week Breakfast
Reconciliation SA is delighted to inform you that the 2019 National Reconciliation Week Breakfast is being held on Monday the 27th of May from 7am until 9am at the Adelaide Convention Centre. We are encouraging our Learning Communities to once again be part of this landmark event.
Reconciliation SA are excited to announce Dr Chelsea Bond as the key note speaker at this year’s Reconciliation Week Breakfast. A Munanjahi and South Sea Islander woman, Dr Bond’s career has focused on interpreting and privileging Indigenous experiences of the health system. Dr Bond is also a prolific writer, frequently contributing to public discourse surrounding Indigenous affairs, race and racism (writing for The Conversation, IndigenousX and NITV).
We are also thrilled that multi-award winning Electric Fields will be our musical feature for this event. They will bring moments of breathtaking beauty and power to the stage with their striking and haunting merging of living traditional culture and music. Electric Fields features the rare and beautiful voice of Zaachariaha Fielding – who often sings in his traditional Anangu language – and the brilliance of producer Michael Ross. Electric Fields will be performing some of their acoustic song collections at this year’s event. LESNW COMM PUB (NRW Flyer)190527
