Divided by Design

“Divided by Design” sees Wiradjuri man Dr. Todd Fernando, the former Commissioner for LGBTIQA+ Communities, taking a bold stand against the intentional divisions sown within society. He shines a light on the deliberate manipulation of information that fosters separation, not unity. Dr. Fernando calls on us all to challenge the roots of our division, championing a collective journey towards a world where belonging triumphs segregation.
