Thomas Mayor in front of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

This year's Eric Johnston lecture will be presented by Thomas Mayor; a proud Torres Strait Islander man who was born and raised on Larrakia Land in Darwin. 

Thomas has tirelessly advocated for the proposals in the Uluru Statement, and is the author of ‘Finding the Heart of the Nation – the journey of the Uluru Statement towards Voice, Treaty and Truth’, published by Hardie Grant. His book tells his story, the story of the Uluru Statement and the remarkable people that he met on his campaigning journey. A children’s version of the book was published in June 2020.

Thomas will be speaking at the annual Eric Johnston lecture at 5.30pm, Wednesday 11 November. His lecture is titled ‘When the Dreaming Becomes Us’.
