As part of this year’s 2019 National Reconciliation Week, we would like to invite all of our student's and staff from St Lucia, Gatton and Herston, to the screening of ‘Occupation: Native’, followed by a special guest Q&A panel.

The ATSIS Unit have organised the screening to commemorate this year’s theme ‘Grounded in Truth – Walk Together with Courage', which seeks to explore truth around the telling of Australian history, so that we can walk together, grounded in truth an into a reconciled future with courage.

Please join us in the Gallery of the UQ Art Museum on Thursday 30th May from 12pm-1:00pm for the documentary screening and from 1-1:30pm for our special guest panel afterwards.

Documentary Synopsis: “In this country, the Aboriginal story is often buried deep beneath the accepted 247-year-old Australian historical narrative. It’s not that the Australian story is wrong, it’s just that it’s a wee bit one sided. Getting all historical, Aboriginal filmmaker Trisha Morton-Thomas, bites back at Australian History”.
