2023 Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration

Monday 29 May 2023

5.30pm - 7.30pm

Bonython Hall, University of Adelaide, North Terrace, Adelaide, Kaurna Country

The Honourable Anthony Albanese MP, Prime Minister of Australia, will deliver the 16th annual Lowitja O’Donoghue Oration during National Reconciliation Week.

The Don Dunstan Foundation is proud to host this special event each year and we look forward to welcoming you to the 2023 Oration, with tickets now on sale.

The Oration honours influential Aboriginal leader Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue AC CBE DSG and seeks to highlight vital issues for Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This is the first time a sitting Prime Minister will deliver the Oration.

The Oration gives voice to issues of equity and equality for Australia’s First Peoples and, right now, that is more important and pertinent than ever. Later in the year Australians will vote in a referendum to change the future for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people now, and for generations to come.

Please join us for this opportunity to hear directly from the Prime Minister about the importance of constitutional recognition and an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice.

Thank you to our presenting partners Reconciliation SA, The University of Adelaide, Flinders University, the Lowitja Institute and the Lowitja O’Donoghue Foundation.
