On Tuesday I delivered the Wang Gungwu Lecture. You can see it on ABC iview.
The event was organized by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations 澳中基金会, an Australian government initiative to strengthen understanding and engagement between Australia and China. Senator the Hon. Penny Wong also had some important words to say via video link.
With Jennifer Wong who acted as MC.
Uncle Michael West gave the Welcome to Country address.
Dr John Yu was last year’s inaugural Wang Gungwu keynote speaker.
Australian Children’s Laureate board members Laurine Croasdale and Lindy Batchelor.
The event was held at the ABC studios in Sydney. What a delight it was to see life-size cardboard cutouts of my illustrations up on stage. These will be donated to the State Library of NSW. This will also be aired on @abctv February 9 at 11.30am.
