IMPORTANT NOTICE: Cancellation of 2020 Graeme Clark Oration. In view of policy statements by both the Commonwealth and Victorian Governments, and in order to provide certainty to the community, sponsors and the orator, the 2020 Graeme Clark Oration, scheduled for 20 July, will be cancelled.

To everyone who has supported the 2020 oration so far – the many members of the public who have already registered to attend, the many schools who were making arrangements to engage with the Oration’s schools program, and to our generous and committed sponsors – we are very grateful for your interest and enthusiasm for the event. We look forward to informing you of the 2021 Graeme Clark Oration details as soon as we can.
