Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) concerns, this event has been postponed. Subscribe to our newsletter if you wish to be notified of the new date for this event.

What We Talk About when we talk about LIBERATION is an event that focuses on the moment of freedom after an intense period of challenge. This is about how people emerge into a fuller understanding of who they are and how they got to where they have. It is about inspirational stories of hope told by people with a diverse array of experiences. These two stories stretch from war-torn streets of Sri Lanka during the Civil War, to a high school in Kalgoorlie in the mid-2000’s.

Join us to hear from Anju Sivarajah and Peehi Blake.
