    10th Annual Walter Lippmann Memorial Oration

    October 13 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

    The 10th Annual Walter Lippmann Memorial Oration will take place on Thursday, 13 October at the Wheeler Centre. Our eminent speaker for this special event will be The Hon Tony Pagone AM KC, a former judge of the Federal Court of Australia, who has made a significant contribution to Australian public life during his distinguished legal career.

    The Walter Lippmann Memorial Oration is held each year in honour of one of ECCV’s founders, Walter Lippmann, who was a strong advocate for multiculturalism and campaigner on issues relating to ethnic communities within Victoria and throughout Australia. 

    Inaugurated in 2011 by former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, the oration has provided an opportunity for eminent Australians to reflect on issues relating to Australia’s identity and multiculturalism. Former speakers have included Gillian Triggs, Tim Costello, Julian Burnside, Arnold Zable, Michael Kirby and Marcia Langton.

    We would like to thank Language Loop for sponsoring this event, and the Lippmann family for their ongoing support.
