Deakin Book Club: Engage with perspectives on the Voice to Parliament referendum

Join us at Deakin Library for the Deakin Book Club: The Voice Referendum, a monthly meeting hosted by Deakin Library and the Deakin Office of Indigenous Strategy and Innovation. This Book Club gives the Deakin community an opportunity to engage with different perspectives around a First Nations Voice to Parliament and allow students and staff to discuss the key issues raised by the referendum.

Registrations are now open to join the book club at a Deakin campus of your choice. Each campus will host monthly in-person book club meetings between July and September. We encourage you to attend all three meetings, but you are welcome to sign up even if you can’t attend all of them. Find the meeting dates for each campus and links to register below.
