When

Wednesday 29 January from 6pm to 9pm

Chinese Australians are our nation’s largest non-white minority group.

But they're rarely heard from on some of Australia’s most contested controversies including racism, freedom of speech, gender, immigration and religion.

We invite Australians of all backgrounds to this special Sydney Lunar New Year Festival edition of Fearless Curious to discuss how a so-called model minority can tackle controversial issues in an age of political tribalism, “cancel culture” and identity politics.

How have traditional beliefs and values changed between generations of migrants?

How have Asian and Western culture - including their different shades - informed Chinese Australian views on controversial issues such as religious freedom, immigration, gender roles, sexuality, freedom of speech, racism and diversity?

Our panellists (to be announced) will explore the often unheard views of many Chinese Australians on modern controversies, and how they can both participate in and improve Australia’s often divisive and angry public discourse.

Hosted by journalist and podcaster Ky Chow, former reporter at SBS, Sky News, the Australian Financial Review and the ABC.
