This is an autonomous event, open to any student who identifies as a person of colour. Borrowing from the ANUSA Ethnocultural department, we define ‘person of Colour’ as students who self-identify as being from a minority racial or ethnic origin, with a common experience of facing systemic racism. This definition includes, but it is not strictly limited to: mixed-race or bi-racial people, people who are white-passing (i.e. are perceived to be white due to skin colour and other identifying features), and are Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

Dietary requirements can be made known during registration. The event takes place at the ANU Union bar in the ANU Union building, which is accessible by wheelchair. Chairs can be provided during the event. Accessible parking spaces are near toad hall.
