As the global Black Lives Matter protests continue, Australians have been challenged to confront the realities of ongoing racism and Aboriginal deaths in custody. Sydney Opera House has invited IndigenousX to curate this panel discussion exploring how state sanctioned violence is enabled and protected by racist ideology, and the role of protests in achieving reform. IndigenousX was founded in 2012 by Luke Pearson, as a way to help showcase and amplify a diverse range of Indigenous voices online. The project began as a rotating Twitter account, where a new Indigenous host takes over the account each week to tell their own stories, experiences and perspectives. Watch this fascinating conversation recorded live at the Sydney Opera House in June.

Sydney Opera House
Australia’s number one tourist destination, welcoming more than 8.2 million visitors a year and one of the world’s busiest performing arts centres, the Sydney Opera House presents more than 2000 shows 363 days a year for more than 1.5 million people, from the work of the seven flagship arts companies to which it is home to First Nations’ arts and culture, talks and ideas, theatre and dance and the superstars of classical and contemporary music. The Act creating the Opera House charged it not only with the promotion of artistic taste across all art forms, but also “scientific research into, and the encouragement of, new and improved forms of entertainment and methods of presentation.”
