The 2023 Ngunnawal Lecture will be the third lecture in UC's Voice to Parliament Lecture series. Join us for a night of song and story! Featuring Thomas Mayo and Shane Howard, this lecture will bring the story and the significance of the Uluru Statement and the Referendum to life through stories, music and celebration. Hosted by Pro Vice Chancellor Indigenous Leadership, Professor Maree Meredith.
Thomas Mayo is a Kaurareg Aboriginal and Kalkalgal, Erubamle Torres Strait Islander man and is the Assistant National Secretary of the MUA. Thomas is a signatory of the Uluru Statement from the Heart and has been a leading advocate since its inception in May 2017.
For over 40 years Shane Howard has established himself as one of Australia's most influential writers and singers and created a uniquely Australian voice. From the red heart, where he penned his enduring song ‘Solid Rock, Sacred Ground’, to the wilds of Tasmania that gave birth to ‘Let the Franklin Flow’, Howard's songs have created a new map of Australia.
