it’s time to change it up! Let’s walk the talk for Recognition.
Boundary Street, Spring Hill to Boundary Street, West End
Sunday 31st May 2015 – 2pm for a 3pm start
On Sunday 31st May, Reconciliation Queensland will be coordinating and participating in a Let’s Walk the Talk for Recognition Twilight Walk “Boundary to Boundary”. It’s time to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s Constitution. And it’s time to remove discrimination — like the section that still says people can be banned from voting based on race — from our founding document.
You are invited to join the walk which starts at 3 pm and is a slow, police supported walk from St James College, Boundary Street, Spring Hill to Boundary Street, West End (approx. 5 km) which recognises the boundaries of indigenous exclusion at twilight from the settlement of Brisbane during the 19th century.
The walk finishes at kuril dhagun, at the Talking Circle, State Library of Queensland, Southbank.
Participants will gather to share stories and enjoy a barbeque and entertainment by local Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islanders singers and dancers.
Walkers are to meet at 2 pm, at St James College, 201 Boundary Street, Brisbane. Please wear comfortable walking shoes, catch public transport if necessary and carry an umbrella if the weather forecast is for either rain or showers.
To promote the recognition of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Australia’s First Peoples through changes to the Australian Constitution is an important consideration for all Australians and we look forward to walking alongside you in support of this endeavour.
