2015 Matija Barisic Oration

An annual Australian Red Cross event, the Oration is dedicated to the work and memory of the late Matija Barisic.

This year, in recognition of the International Day of Peace (21 September 2015), the event seeks to recognise and honour the contributions made by all members of our diverse community, towards a humanitarian vision.

Please join host Julie McCrossin with panellists Abdi Aden, Mariam Issa and Najaf Mazari, as they share their stories and experiences of living in a multicultural society. Sudanese singer Ajak Kwai will also share her own stories during the evening, through song.
