When the Uluru Statement from the Heart was released in 2017, it called for an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice to be enshrined in the Australian Constitution.
 
It was an important moment in our country's history, calling for structural reform to enable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to have a greater say in the laws, policies and services that impact them. 
 
UQ alumnus Professor Megan Davis was a member of the Referendum Council which designed a series of dialogues culminating in the creation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart in 2017.  
 
Join Professor Davis, the Balnaves Chair in Constitutional Law at UNSW Sydney as she reflects on key concepts of the Uluru Statement from the Heart and important questions facing Australia on the path to a better future.

About National Reconciliation Week

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

Reconciliation must live in the hearts, minds and actions of all Australians as we move forward, creating a nation strengthened by respectful relationships between the wider Australian community, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

UQ will be holding a number of events and activations from 27 May-3 June to commemorate National Reconciliation Week.
