COVID-19 has changed our world. Australia’s international border has been effectively closed since March and the continent seems more distant than ever from places and people that have long influenced and informed it – including Europe, with its dialogues and its diversity.

Join key contributors to Griffith Review 69: The European Exchange – published during this pandemic – for a discussion about Australia’s relationship with Europe, and how that longstanding exchange can be a resource for the future.
Whitlam Institute Director Leanne Smith will facilitate a conversation between Natasha Cica, David Morris, Sally Wheeler and Christos Tsiolkas.
