Film Screening
As a global television event commemorates the anniversary of September
11 and heralds the war on terror, an Iraqi woman and her family living
in Australia reflect on the looming invasion of their country and, as
history unfolds again, the future for their people.

A STATE OF PEACE is a short documentary film by Rachel Maher.

Event accompanied by a screening of HARRY'S WAR by Richard Frankland -
set in Papua New Guinea during WWII and following the military lives of
two friends; Harry (a Koori) and Mitch (non-Aboriginal Australian).
Harry's War demonstrates that men can live, and die, as equals,
regardless of race or the artificial barriers of society.

History  Culture  Directions
This May is the 40th anniversary of the hand-over of West Papua to
Indonesia. Then, as now, West Papuans want to determine their future: in
government, in politics and economy. Join us as people concerned about
human rights, as academics, politicians and Papuan guests converge in
the last week of February to share perspectives about the past, present
and future of West Papua....

Transnationals, the military and Indonesia have profited from the mining
of West Papua's wealth of natural resources in the past. What will
happen to West Papuan resources into the future? What are Indonesia's
present plans for the territory? West Papuans are calling for a zone of
peace. Is this achievable? How can West Papua be demilitarised?

West Papua is on Australia's doorstep, yet receives little attention
here in Australia. What can and should be done by Australia, and this
region, about West Papua? Speakers include: Denise Leith, Bob Brown, Nic
Mclellan, Chris Richards, Kel Dummett, Jason McLeod, and speakers from
around the region.

Event accompanied by "PAPUA BARAT MERDEKA", a touring photographic
exhibition of works by Andrew Kilvert. Supported by Artback NT.
