The salon will be a discussion of the Australian-American relationship in its broadest sense, including political, economic and cultural aspects. What can Australian learn from the United States? How can Australia emulate the successes of America - an economic powerhouse, a cultural melting pot, a leader in developing pioneering technologies - while avoiding some of its challenges such as economic inequality, racial divisions and political polarisation?
The event will be hosted by the Australian Fulbright Alumni Association. Fulbright scholars from both countries will be present at the event, along with Fulbright alumni, and students from the Australian National University. The event will be free to attend and capped to 120 places. The event is supported by the United States Embassy. The event will run in conjunction with the Fulbright Scholar Orientation Program run by the Australian-American Fulbright Commission.
The event will include speakers followed by morning tea refreshments. RSVPs will be open closer to the event.
