Questions for the Nation: Newcastle

Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 2:00 pm

Who do we want to be, and how are we going to get there? In partnership with the Wheeler Centre in Melbourne, Helen Withycombe hosts a discussion on the present and future of the nation. Join Casey Briggs, Zana Kobayashi and Haleema for their take on the most important question facing Australia today, before the microphone turns to you: what questions should Australia be asking?

This event is free but you do need to register your attendance.
