The Power of Hope/Asylum By Boat

Kon Karapanagiotidis + Dr Claire Higgins

Auditorium 1, State Library of Queensland

A powerful, inspiring memoir from Kon Karapanagiotidis, founder of the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, which argues that by putting community, love and compassion at the centre of our lives, we have the power to change our world.

Higgins brings a fascinating investigation into the Australian Government’s welcoming of thousands of Vietnamese refugees during the 1970s in the face of prejudice and panic.
