Reframing the way we look at the world and ourselves.
There is a growing awareness that, for most of us, our influence to change the world happens in our closest quarters. It is in everyday interactions, in classrooms, among family or our local community that we have the power to foster belonging and acceptance.
To shape an ethical future, we need the ability to accept differences and to know and appreciate the diverse lived experiences of those around us.
In Australia, this means reckoning with our past. Our researchers, led by Indigenous academics, are looking at creative ways to tell Australian stories, to better understand the history of Australia’s Indigenous people and preserve and celebrate one of the world’s oldest and richest cultures.
We are looking at what it means to be Australian – and how our history and culturally diverse population fits within the global conversation of human rights, migration and identity.
This high impact work is tackling big challenges with big ideas.
