One Night Only
Kev Carmody has established himself as one of the most respected
singer/songwriters in the country. Carmody lives out the life of a
modern troubadour. He is a travelling songsmith with an itinerary which
finds him touring the world. He regularly tours Australian goals, works
with street kids, plays at a Greenpeace rally or fund-raiser, a world
music celebration, an Aboriginal musical festival, on a university
campus, or at Trades Hall.

Kev will be accompanied by Tonchi McIntosh - a voice full of warmth and
emotion, of a clear-sighted passion for the land and its traditional
owners, moving from acoustic folk/rock to electric and touches of reggae
and country. One of McIntosh's strengths is the meshing of imagery, be
it allegorical or as raw and rich as the red earth of the outback. It
gives his music an originality, that in Australia, is something to

Lovers of British drama and fans of television's Cracker, this is your
chance to get up close and personal with screenwriter Jimmy McGovern.

success as a writer for stage and screen reads an impressive list of

Coltrane, the haunting British drama The Lakes and feature films

Jimmy McGovern has generously agreed to this one off, unique event where
he will enjoy a live interview with guild member Stella Kinsella and
share clips and stories from his screen repertoire. This is a rare and
valuable opportunity for writers and lovers of screen drama to
participate in what promises to be an evening of insight and laughter.

Violent Conquest or Benign Colonisation?
Keith Windschuttle debates Pat Grimshaw
In his recent book The Fabrication of Aboriginal History, Keith
Windschuttle charges academic historians with a series of wilful
misrepresentations intended to portray Australia as a society marked by
atrocities against Aboriginies. In this important debate, Keith
Windschuttle and Pat Grimshaw outline competing accounts of white
settlement, and explain what is at stake in the dispute.

In addition to The Fabrication of Aboriginal History (2002), Keith
Windschuttle is the author of six other books on contemporary social
issues, including The Killing of History: How Literary Critics and
Social Theorists Are Murdering Our Past (2000). He is also publisher and
a frequent contributor to The New Criterion and Quadrant.

Pat Grimshaw holds the Max Crawford Chair of History at the University
of Melbourne. She is the author of Women's Suffrage in New Zealand
(revised edition 1987) and co-author of Creating a Nation (1994). A
co-authored comparative study of the place of indigenous peoples in the
political structures of British settler colonies is currently in press.

that the blueprints for WTO supranational control are designed in secret
meetings between the planet's corporate elite and government
