Emergency notice

A Lunchtime Film - Wik vs Queensland

16 July 2019

All Department of Education staff are warmly invited to join us for a lunchtime screening of the award-winning documentary, 'Wik vs Queensland' at 11:45am at 105 Phillip Street, Parramatta, on Wednesday 14 August 2019.

Presented with the support of Great Place To Work as part of our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), this will be the third in our series of film screenings which provide an opportunity for us to come together to develop a greater understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures; continue the conversation and generate mutual respect.

'Wik vs Queensland' is a landmark feature documentary that takes us inside the High Court's historic decision in 1996 to grant native title to the Wik peoples of Cape York, and the demonization that followed at the hands of politicians and media.

This powerful film asks what can be learned from the way Australia chose to respond to the 'Wik Decision' and why it still matters today.

Find out more about the film and reserve your tickets at Eventbrite.
