Before and After
Before and After explores the divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia.
In recent years, as elections have come and gone, we have witnessed our governments at first refuse, and then say ‘sorry’. However, until those words are truly felt by a largely complacent population, how can we hope
to bridge the divide?
As we look forwards, to an inevitable time where we no longer carry the Queen in our pockets, we must not only recognise the atrocities of those that came before us, but work to ensure the breakdown of lingering prejudice and inequality.
Only then do we stand a chance of defining an indentity we can all share.
