2014 Rona Bailey Memorial Lecture
This year’s Rona Bailey Memorial Lecture will be given by Robert Consedine on 13 February 2014, 6pm, at Toi Whakaari New Zealand Drama School, 11 Hutchison Road, Newtown. All are very welcome. Please feel free to share this event with whomever you think might be interested.
In the later 1980s Rona Bailey was actively involved in establishing Project Waitangi, a community organisation which sought to educate Pākehā around the Treaty, in light of the approaching 1990 sequicentennial of the Treaty’s signing. Over a number of years a network of Project Waitangi groups did much work in this regard. This work raised a number of issues in the broader context of progressive politics in this country. We are very fortunate to have Robert speaking on this topic, as he, like Rona, has had a long and varied involvement in progressive politics in this country, and for many years now has conducted his own Treaty education consultancy as Waitangi Associates.
