The Uluru Statement from the Heart has extended a generous and powerful invitation to all Australians – and at Belvoir St Theatre and Biennale of Sydney we are accepting this invitation and asking you to join us on this journey of saying Yes to constitutional recognition.

This event will be an immersive conversation, both in person and online, ensuring that everyone can participate and contribute.

Narelda Jacobs OAM, of Whadjuk Noongar heritage, will be joined by Tony McAvoy SC, proud Wirdi man, barrister and first Indigenous Senior Counsel, Yuwaalaraay storyteller from north west NSW freshwater floodplains Nardi Simpson, and Jade Ritchie, originally from Bundaberg, but has lived on Larrakia country for the past 10 years.

They will lead an immersive conversation, delving into the significance of the Voice, the importance of formal recognition, and the journey toward truth-telling. We will explore the deep-rooted connection between art, culture, and the Voice, as well as the impact they can have on shaping a better future.

Belvoir St Theatre recognises and honours the rich history of storytelling and community gathering that has taken place on this site for generations.

First Nations artists and communities have shared their stories on our stages, enriching all our lives. We recognise the profound contributions of First Nations People to art, culture, and society, and we accept the call for constitutional recognition.

Join us in this spirit of generosity, as we come together as a community to learn, discuss, and understand the Voice to Parliament.
