On 20th of September 2019 we held the very first free Public Lecture and Workshop: ‘Racism, Sport & Genders: Moving Together & Beyond Binaries’. The event had five speakers and showed trailers for the films The Australian Dream (written by Professor Stan Grant about AFL star Adam Goodes), The Mystery of Now (by Audrey Buchanan and Douglas Miles about Apache Skateboards) and Carving Space (Queer skateboarding documentary), and included a workshop where attendees reflected on event themes and talked about their own road maps, responses and goals for the future. A report will be written up with various resources available and distributed at a later date.
