Join us at the Sydney Peace Prize Gala Dinner to honour our 2021 recipient, the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The Gala Dinner is the Sydney Peace Foundation’s annual fundraising celebration. This historic event offers you and your guests an intimate opportunity to hear from the 2021 recipients and key drivers of the Statement, Pat Anderson AO, Professor Megan Davis and Noel Pearson in conversation with leading journalist Narelda Jacobs.
Leading First Nations performers and entertainers will come together to honour the Uluru Statement, and you will experience Australia’s only Indigenous hatted chef, Clayton Donovan’s stunning fine dining menu.
This year, we have had unprecedented demand for tables. We are moving the Gala Dinner to the beautiful surrounds of Carriageworks to ensure as many of you can attend as possible (in a Covid-safe way!).
Don’t miss this once-in-a-life-time opportunity to come together with friends and colleagues, honour this historic offering of peace in our nation and join us in calling for real change for First Nations peoples.
