Our presenter will be the Honorary Professor Barry Golding AM with the topic “Some disturbing home truths: the first five years in southern Dja Dja Wurrung country, 1838 – 1843”. Barry has worked as a vocational, adult and community education researcher with the School Education, Federation University in Ballarat, with a special interest in indigenous vocational education and first nation’s history and culture.
