The Right to be Heard Exhibition is its last days at the Goldfields Arts Centre. Get in now to see this thought provoking exhibition before it is over.
The launch was a tremendous event with around 60 people braving the Kalgoorlie cold to attend. The Tjupan choir opened the event with a song written especially for the exhibition. A general talk by Sue Hanson was followed by a powerful speech by Les Schultz as he opened the exhibition.

Attendees mingled with the people whose portraits and words were on display for drinks and nibbles. Lovely bush tucker nibbles were a hit with kangaroo spring rolls, chocolate mousse with quandong coulis proving to be popular.

A tremendous thank you to everyone involved with bringing this important visual conversation to fruition on this, the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Referendum.
