There is a multitude of commentary and debate circulating in Australian politics and media concerning Indigenous Australians. Yet how much airtime is actually given to Indigenous Australians themselves?
This is Time to Listen, a podcast that gives a space and a platform to Indigenous voices. You will hear from prominent leaders, such as Noel Pearson and Richie Ah Mat. We will bring forward the voices of traditional owners and custodians of culture, and ensure a diversity of perspective between leaders experienced and emerging.
Through the work of the Cape York Partnership and its associated entities, we will explore Indigenous solutions to the issues that acutely afflict our First Nations People, particularly with regard to education, employment, empowerment, policy and culture.
The first official episode of the Time to Listen podcast will air Tuesday, the 20th of April.
