In Conversation events
To open the series Eltham Library hosted Proud Yankanjatjara and Wirangu woman Shelley Ware and Proud Wotjoboluk woman Janine Coombs in conversation. The event offered a unique opportunity to hear from two Aboriginal women as they expressed their perspectives on what the Uluru Statement from the Heart means to them, to Aboriginal people, and its potential significance for the wider community. Attendees were able to become informed, explored the issues, and learned from the guest speakers, providing an enlightening start to the program.
