The Race to Change? A Case for Repentance

As if we needed any reminder, the ugly spectre of racism has entered our collective psyche. From the early settlement to the stolen generation, our own history of race relations is not enviable. In this year’s Smith Lecture, we go beyond the slogans to consider matters of the heart.

What drives racist behaviour, even from men and women of faith? If true reconciliation and equality for First Nations People is the desire, what needs to change? Is there a path forward and is the Christian message part of the problem or the solution?

Hosted by acclaimed historian Dr. Meredith Lake, the evening will include talks by both Peter Gibbs and Dr. Laura Rademaker. The doors will be open from 6pm to enjoy an exclusive viewing of the new extension to the AGNSW in the North building. Don't miss a special dialogue between John Kaldor and Jonathan Jones on the place of art in transcending our differences. This will be held from 6:30pm before the lecture commences at 7pm. A bar will be open for purchasing drinks from 6pm.

The online event will start at 6:30pm AEST
