West Papua is on the move, please join us for the first Open Day for 2016 at our Docklands office. It promises to be spectacular, graced with:

  • Colonel Lance Collins (ret.) signing his riveting historical fiction A Dowry for the Sultan;
  • Jacob Rumbiak talking about what we’re doing in 2016;
  • Izzy Brown’s latest short documentary about Babuan Mirino’s traditional mid-wife skills;
  • and an interview with Uniting Church elder, Robert Stringer, after visiting West Papua in which he identifies clear parallels between life in Indonesian-West Papua and life in Nazi Germany.
