Bringing Remote Education back into the limelight: Bawurra Foundation at Parliament House, Sydney (8
May the 31st 2017 was a special night for the Bawurra Foundation as we successfully hosted our first public event. The event consisted of a film screening and Q&A session which was held at NSW Parliament House, Sydney, in partnership with Walanga Muru, Macquarie University’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Centre, and MQISA, Macquarie University's Indigenous Student Association. Over fifty activists and students were in attendance for the screening.
The screening of the Asia Pacific Screen Awards 2011 UNESCO Screen Award winner Toomelah, with the accompanying expert panel discussion aimed to examine the problems that Indigenous Youth face in remote communities and to discuss how the future of the children in these communities can be improved.
