Award winning journalist Stan Grant brings you a new voice in Indigenous current affairs. It's time for Australia to AWAKEN.

AWAKEN, a half hour current affairs panel show, draws the great thinkers and news makers to challenge and provoke and chart a new path to greater awareness and understanding of Indigenous Australia.

Now more than ever the Indigenous voice is being heard. From politics, to sport, to art and culture we have moved from the shadows. As we celebrate our success, there is a greater awareness of the challenges, the appalling health, education, employment, housing figures; the frighteningly high number of Indigenous people behind bars.

Australia is grappling with healing the wounds of the past as Indigenous people find new ways to define ourselves. AWAKEN is a news program for these times. Hosted by award winning journalist Stan Grant, AWAKEN will draw the great thinkers and newsmakers of Indigenous and non-indigenous society to challenge and provoke and chart a new path to greater awareness and understanding. It is time for Australia to AWAKEN.
