Arena Magazine and Arena Journal, and concerned Australians invite you to attend
A Public Forum on the Northern Territory Intervention into Indigenous communities and the Stronger Futures legislation.
On the five-year anniversary of the NT Intervention and at the beginning of a decade of so-called Stronger Futures, our speakers will discuss the scope of the Intervention, what has happened on the ground, and how the Intervention relates to neo-liberal governance and Australia’s settler colonial heritage. What are the ways forward?
