Abstract
Located on the ancient lands of the Ngunnawal People and situated between Sydney and Melbourne, Canberra is the centre of Government power in Australia. What shapes and influences policy isn’t what we all might think. Australia is meant to be a representative democracy, yet the representation is so uneven that significant areas of the population have little voice. So how do we get the corridors of power to engage with remote and very remote communities.
