We are delighted to extend to you a warm invitation to our special Refugee Week Celebration to be held in partnership with the City of Sydney – Different Pasts, Shared Future.


Hosted by Julia Baird, ABC The Drum, speakers include author Thomas Keneally, social researcher Hugh Mackay, artist Wendy Sharpe, Amnesty International’s Refugee Spokesperson Graham Thom and the Principal of Holroyd High School, Dorothy Hoddinott.
