Through her creation and portrayal of a slew of memorable and colourful characters, Magda Szubanski has provided a humorous (though sometimes dark) window on some of the colourful characters that make up our communities. But as great as these characters are, as much as they tell us about ourselves, the woman is far more interesting than her creations. Hear all about it. In her own words.

The Purpose of Place
For our country to be prosperous and successful, our cities and towns must be better. For our places to be better, there must be deep collaboration between government, communities and individuals. The mining boom is over. The time is now. The communities are yours. The person is you.

Understanding how Australia can move forward and be a better place from perspectives of Aboriginal women is integral to a more positive future.
