This is a remarkable community and a remarkable nation. In this new global culture that we're all experiencing, Australia's contribution has been far out of proportion to its population -- in modern art, in learning, in music, in theater, in opera, in the cinema. The novels of Patrick White, Thomas Keneally, David Malouf; the paintings of Sidney Nolan, Russell Drysdale, Utopia artists; the films of Baz Luhrmann, Peter Weir, and so many others. And according to the young people in my group, bands like Midnight Oil and silverchair.
