We'll start the day will Elders Stories from our local community and some of our favourite Blak anthems.

Friday 11:00am to 4:00pm
The 26th of January marks the anniversary of the invasion of this continent, the start of a genocide that Aboriginal people continue to face, and the Aboriginal resistance that continues today. Invasion Day is a time to protest for land rights, sovereignty and self-determination for all Aboriginal people. This year we mark Invasion Day with 6 hours of special programming from 10am – 4 pm on Friday 26th January. At 10 am we'll bring you Yarra Elders Precious Memories - a portion of the many significant and important elders in the community whose stories are yet to be heard. We’ll cross live to the rally that begins on the steps of Victorian Parliament at 11am followed by an afternoon of deadly music, First Nations voices and updates from actions all across the land.

Enpsychedelia hosting a panel at Rainbow Serpent Festival in 2017

Tune in this Sunday, 10 December between 2-3pm as we cross live to Entheogenesis Australis 2017 Psychedelic Symposium in Eildon. With blanket bans on psychoactives increasing, cognitive liberty is in chains. Where does reform for laws covering psychedelics fit within drug law reform? In an environment where evidence is not the drive for policy, how do we keep policymakers accountable? How can you help?

From 7am – 7pm we’ll be covering many topics, from discrimination and violence against people with disability, to education and employment, benefits, wages and equal pay, communication and relationships, arts and music – everything and anything that gives voice to the rights and achievements of people with disability.
