Darwin Deckchair Event

Drawing on events surrounding the sustained booing of Adam Goodes in the Australian Football League 2013 and 2014 seasons, this NAIDOC Week event is an opportunity to hear Indigenous Voices and discuss the nature of ethical relationships and emancipatory leadership. The event will aim to examine the diversity of responses to racism depicted in The Final Quarter, a masterful documentary directed by Ian Darling. Following the screening of The Final Quarter, five panellists and the public will discuss key topics addressed in the documentary.

Wednesday 5 July 2023 @ 7:00 PM, Deckchair Cinema, Jervois Road, Darwin City NT 0800
