Event Details

Reconciliation NSW’s signature anti-racism event exposes white privilege and colour blindness by asking hard questions – albeit irreverently. What do racists look like? Am I one? OMG, I do think that!

This fun session is part game show – think Hard Quiz-style trivia meets Bingo – and part comedic debate with music and poetry mixed in for good measure. Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, and be empowered to say something if you see something, because you're not racist!

Reconciliation NSW educates, allies and amplifies First Nations voices, and has been running I'm Not Racist, But... events since 2012. This year, participation and interactivity hits the next level with rapid fire bingo calls and quiz questions. The challenge to prove yourself as 'not a racist' may be just a little bit unsettling, but this is a safe space for all. Your hosts and the panel of contestants includes eminent First Nations podcasters, comedians, entertainers, and cultural icons! Expect prizes, laughs and learning.

I'm Not Racist, But... events aim to educate and engage people in the five dimensions of Reconciliation: Race relations; Equity & Equality; Unity; Historical Acceptance and Institutional Integrity. As the peak body for reconciliation in NSW, our members include First Nations and non-Indigenous people working together to advance reconciliation in their communities, to create a just and equitable community for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians in NSW.
