Lost Conversations

It’s time for a game-changer in how black and white Australians relate.
It’s time we learnt to find new ways to lead together.

Lost Conversations is a book which brings together perspectives from a diversity of Aboriginal and non-Indigenous authors, all with first-hand knowledge of what happens when ‘black’ and ‘white’ Australians come together to work on change.

Lost Conversations tells personal stories and proposes new ways of working (not new ‘fixes’, programs or money) as the missing element in how to make progress on reconciliation.

Lost Conversations​ aims to take black:white conversations to new levels of courageousness and openness.


The creators of Lost Conversations are black and white Australians from different parts of the country who represent diverse opinions and lived experience. In alphabetical order, they are:

Geoff Aigner
Cheryl Godwell
Jane Martin
Grant Paulson
John Rawnsley
​Kim Robertson
Liz Skelton
Libby Varcoe and
Mark Yettica-Paulson
