The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre
Strengthening our Democracy. Valuing our Diversity. Building our Future.
The Bob Hawke Prime Ministerial Centre, known as the Hawke Centre, is a community-focused centre devoted to generating ideas and solutions to achieve cohesive, sustainable societies. We engage with local and international communities through public learning activities including lectures, seminars, alliances and research projects.
Latest Update: 26 November, 2020
The safety of our attendees, speakers and staff is our chief priority. For this reason, our Kerry Packer Civic Gallery is closed until the end of the year, re-opening 6 January 2021.
You can continue to engage with our innovative and thoughtful online events, including recent In-Conversations with Ronni Kahn and Craig Reucassel and The Truth of the Palace Letters. You can also access recent events - see our Relive our Events page for details.
We will resume our live program of thoughtful events with some of the world’s most creative and innovative minds when it is safe to do so.
We appreciate your understanding and patience in these ongoing challenging times.
Please take care,
