We spend a great deal of time discussing asylum seekers’ journeys to our shores. But what happens when they finally get here? Guest curator Rebecca Huntley has drawn together some of the leading voices in the asylum seeker debate for a candid discussion about the challenges refugees face in settling down – and what they really think of Australians. Join former Sudanese child soldier turned lawyer Deng Adut, Tim Costello, award-winning author A.S. Patrić and The Social Outfit’s Ruck Sar.

Curated by Rebecca Huntley.
