Initiatives of Change (Australia) will facilitate a Community Trust Building event at the Multifaith Centre, Nathan Campus, Griffith University on Saturday August 31.
The panel will include Susan Moylan-Coombs, indigenous broadcaster and community leader from Sydney, who will share her vision for the future, including the truth-telling and healing journey that will help us get there.
There will be a concerted effort to look at what it takes to resolve enmities and conflicts between people, whether based on religion, culture or anything else.
An emphatic demonstration of trustbuilding between Muslims and Christians will be seen with excerpts from the award-winning film from Nigeria, The Imam and the Pastor, and its sequel An African Answer.
Come join this journey of healing, that we all still need, and exploration of where we go from here.

Susan Moylan-Coombs is the guest speaker. Susan has worked at the ABC, as Indigenous Programs Manager which included Message Stick and responsibility for managing the television broadcast of Kevin Rudd’s Apology. She is well-known in Sydney as an Indigenous broadcaster and leader.
Amiel Nubaha, joining Susan as a panel member, is a young Rwandan Australian who just finished his double degree in Law and Criminology and Criminal Justice at Griffith – the celebrations took more than a week! The trauma his family have been through in Africa is incredible and they’ve come through all that with much to offer. Amiel has also just completed a month-long Initiatives of Change program in Switzerland called Caux Scholars Program.
Nora Amath from the Islamic Women’s Association, a wonderful speaker, will also be a panel member.
