Gubberdee with Nova Peris

Nova Peris and Jessie Lloyd


Join Jessie Lloyd in conversation as she discusses the meaning of this year’s NAIDOC theme ‘Because of her, we can!’ with Nova Peris.

As the first Indigenous Australian to win Olympic gold and the first Indigenous woman to be elected into federal parliament, Nova Peris has represented in more way than one. Come and hear her personal stories and experiences behind these inspiring achievements.

Melbourne Recital Centre proudly stands on the land of the Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation, and we acknowledge the powerful storytelling of a thousand generations who precede us.
