Some of our 2022 events

Matthew Ricketson (L) launches his book Who Needs the ABC? with Eugene Duffy (editor of The Courier, Ballarat) at Ballarat Library. 14 September 2022.

On 5 September ABC Friends Ballarat co-sponsored the grand final of the 2022 South Street ACU Debating Challenge for secondary students. Students debated the relevance of the ABC to young people today and whether a publicly funded ABC is more important than ever for Australia’s democracy.
