2014 Schedule and Podcasts

Rural and remote communities are at the centre of the mythology and cultural ethos of Australia. Most of us have indulged nostalgic and sentimental thoughts of the outback and life in the bush – helped along perhaps by a film we’ve seen. But the reality of life for many people in rural and remote Australia is quite another story – and one that needs to be told. Dr John Ashfield, Project Consultant

This is one marvellous resource that includes an eclectic and very interesting collection of experiences, contexts and views pertaining to this wonderfully unique country and its peoples. I feel privileged to have been included. Thank you Tony.
Dr Charlotte de Crespigny, Professor of Drug and Alcohol Nursing, The University of Adelaide.
