    As part of the celebration of the 70th anniversary of Philippines-Australia bilateral relations, the Australian Embassy and the Cultural Center of the Philippines host the book launch and exhibition of “Re-Imagining Australia: Voices of Indigenous Australians of Filipino Descent”.

    Australian Ambassador Amanda Gorely will deliver her opening remarks on Tuesday, 18 October, together with Ms. Deborah Wall, book author, Mr. Raul Sunico, President of the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and Mr Kevin Puertollano, one of the narrators of the book. After the short program, visitors are welcome to look at the exhibit, while Ms. Deborah Wall and the narrators are available for a short interview upon request.

    “Re-Imagining Australia: Voices of Indigenous Australians of Filipino Descent” is Ms. Deborah Wall’s third book that gives a closer look to Aboriginal Australians with Filipino descent, otherwise called as the ManilaMen.
