Jacinta Nampijinpa Price is an Indigenous Alice Springs town councillor who has come under fire in the media for expressing opposition to the idea that Australia Day should be moved to another date because of the offence it causes the indigenous community; and for arguing that some segments of the Aboriginal community spend too much energy on being perpetually aggrieved and not enough on attending to the real issues that the community faces. Jacinta is the daughter of former CLP politician Bess Price and won the 2011 NAIDOC Awards Artist of the Year. In the wake of a growing ‘Change the Date’ movement, Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, dives deep to uncover what is causing further division, what is distracting us from bridging the indigenous divide and what a connected future would look like.  With over 20 years of experience delivering cross-cultural education, Jacinta will also give her unique insights on the Uluru Statement, her opposition to the ‘Change the Date’ movement and other indigenous affairs elements that are not having a meaningful impact on Australia’s most marginalised people. , City of Boroondara [email protected] Australia/Melbourne public
