How did Voices of the Top End start?

How did Voices of the Top End start?

Answer

VoTE started because a group of Top End locals were not feeling well represented by their politicians. The Top Enders were inspired by a community movement in the electorate of Indi in central Victoria, and other federal electorates across the country: locals had held ‘Kitchen Table Conversations’ to record their voices about what they wanted in their own communities.

We wanted to participate in our democracy in positive ways, re-building trust, encouraging others to listen to each other, raise their voices and pursue high standards in political representation.

Eight Darwin locals decided to do the same thing, to hold Kitchen Table Conversations and provide a report to all the candidates in the 2024 NT election. Voices of the Top End was founded in 2021.
