Accessibility and Safety

The Parliament House Theatrette is located inside Parliament House and up the stairs or elevator to the right hand side of the foyer.

I am dedicated to ensuring that these events are inclusive and safe spaces that can be attended by anyone. If there’s anything I or my team can do to ensure you are able to attend and get the most out of the experience (e.g. by having an AUSLAN or other interpreter available), please email [email protected] 

Please note, this briefing will contain distressing information and images related to the first hand experiences of aid workers in Gaza.
