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.
