Conservation SA is proud to be supporting a very special event, ‘Talking Straight Out’, at the Festival Centre on Thursday 15th October.

Just over a decade ago a group of senior Aboriginal women from Coober Pedy led a campaign against a proposed nuclear waste dump on their country. They not only stopped the toxic dump being built – their work won international acclaim and united many South Australians to a common cause.
This exhibition features images and insights from the successful Irati Wanti campaign.
We take our hats off to the Kupa Piti Kungka Tjuta now, as we did then. Their words and campaign continue to inspire us.

Where: The Lyrics Room, Adelaide Festival Centre, King William St

When: Thursday 15th October
Time: Doors open at 5pm. Inma and talks at 6pm
This is a free event, please RSVP here.
