The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS), in partnership with the Churchill Trust, launched the Voices of Power VoP podcast.

The VoP series, featuring Indigenous Churchill Fellows from around Australia, explores critical stages in the fight for First Nations rights and self-determination and for meaningful representation in places of power.

The partnership was formed to acknowledge and draw on the collective and individual wisdom and experiences of what is a strong cohort of Indigenous Churchill Fellows. Each episode is introduced by AIATSIS CEO and Churchill Fellow Craig Ritchie (ACT, 2006) (Dunghutti/Biripi).

Led by Craig Ritchie, some of the VoP Churchill Fellows spoke about First Nations’ voices in Australia at the 2022 AIATSIS summit

The Centre for Policy Futures at the University of Queensland, in partnership with the Churchill Trust, work towards increasing the impact of  Churchill Fellows and their findings through the Policy Impact Program (PIP) and flagship publication Policy Futures: A Reform Agenda.

The Policy Impact Program identifies, curates and advocates a selection of ideas from Churchill Fellows that have the potential to shape best practice and policy reform on a variety of relevant and contemporary issues facing Australia.

PIP Fellows work alongside leading policy analysts to assess the policy implications of their work and develop their policy ideas into an article for the annual publication. PIP Fellows are also provided with opportunities to develop their skills in policy and governance, identify and engage with relevant government leaders, extend their networks, and learn how to improve the context-specificity of their findings.

Yellow Edge, in collaboration with the Churchill Trust, launched The Wayfinder podcast.

The series, featuring Churchill Fellows, discusses how high-performing individuals plotted the path to success. It explores the often winding paths of how these Fellows came to their professions and catalogs the trials and tribulations faced along the way.

The Churchill Trust is grateful to Yellow Edge for their generosity in offering places to Churchill Fellows to attend the annual Global Leadership Practices Program, a 5-day, 6-country leadership experience for executives.

The Royal Society for Arts, Manufactures and Commerce offers Churchill Fellows, through exclusive membership, the opportunity to connect with The RSA, its Fellows and networks and to engage in events and development opportunities.

Connecting our Fellows with another community of diverse change-makers, in over 80 countries, to collaborate and broaden dissemination and development networks, is in keeping with the Churchill Trust’s ethos to Learn Globally and Inspire Locally.

Visual arts partner

The Trust is delighted to announce the launch of our visual arts partnership with the National Portrait Gallery, to coincide with the NPG’s very special Shakespeare to Winehouse exhibition.

This exhibition of over 80 treasured works is normally housed at the National Portrait Gallery in London. We have a special opportunity to see this collection of famous faces from the sixteenth century to today, while the London gallery undergoes renovations. This is a once-in-a-generation opportunity – showing exclusively at the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra.

Included in the exhibition is an informal portrait of Winston Churchill by artist Walter Sickert, that was completed when Churchill was Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1927. Although Sickert was giving Churchill painting lessons that he said helped him ‘to paint far better pictures than I ever thought possible before’, he didn’t like this portrait and gave it away soon after it had been presented to him.
