A LITTLE NIGHT SITTING - 1967 REFERENDUM

A LITTLE NIGHT SITTING - 1967 REFERENDUM

​​​Join us for a winter night sitting to commemorate 50 years since the 1967 Referendum

In 1967, over 90% of the nation voted YES to amend the constitution to include Aboriginal people in the census and allow the Commonwealth to create laws for them. This was an extraordinary result particularly as only 8 of 44 referendums have been successful since 1901.  You are invited to participate in our A Little Night Sitting series, and hear Professor Larissa Behrendt, Director of Research at the Jumbunna Indigenous House of Learning, University of Technology, speak on this important event in Australian History.

It's also your chance to view our 1967 referendum display, watch both houses of parliament in session, meet Members, and learn about the role and function of the legislature. 

TUESDAY 20 JUNE 2017 • 5.00pm to 7.00pm
