Ms Pat Anderson AO will deliver the Lecture, which commemorates the historic walk-off from Wave Hill Station by Indigenous stockmen and their families, planting the seeds for Aboriginal land rights in Australia.
In her lecture titled, ‘Our Hope for the Future:  Voice. Treaty. Truth’ Ms Anderson will reflect on her personal history and experience as an advocate for social justice during the last half-century of struggle for the recognition of the rights of
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Chair of the Lowitja Institute and co-chair of the former Prime Minister's Referendum Council, Ms Anderson is a campaigner for advancing the rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in education, health, early childhood development, and violence against women and children. She is an Aboriginal advocate for social justice and winner of the 2016 Human Rights Medal.
