Whitlam Institute Open Day

  • Female Orphan School (map)

You're invited to the Whitlam Institute for a day of lectures, discussions, workshops, and a peek into the treasures of the Prime Ministerial Collection.

At the Whitlam Institute we strive to be a nationally significant institution delivering distinctive, bold and inspiring policy research and programs that promote common ground, inclusive national identity and civic engagement for all Australians. We aim to be recognised across the political spectrum as delivering a nation-building agenda that will, as Gough hoped, “…help the great and continuing work of building a more equal, open, tolerant and independent Australia”.

Our work is based in the values of integrity, respect, courage, equality and inclusivity as well as passion and creativity. Our goals, across the many different activities we perform, are to honour and keep the Whitlam legacy alive; to empower Australians to be active participants in democratic life; to create more inclusive public policy engagement with a particular focus on social justice and social democracy; and finally, to create a space for intellectual and cultural engagement for the people of Western Sydney.

We invite you to visit us to find out more.
