Adam is involved in the following two Aboriginal Advancement Projects:

  1. Production of a short documentary on the abduction of Bennelong and subsequent voyage with Arthur Phillip to London as Envoy
  2. Clearing of lantana from the spot where the abovementioned abduction took place at Collins Beach, Manly
  • Work on the above 2 projects would be wonderful vehicle for Reconciliation with indigenous peoples of Australia.
  • The site is an important historical site, being the place from which Bennelong was abducted on 25 November 1789 and the site where Governor Phillip was subsequently speared on 7th September 1790.
  • The relationship between Canada Bay area and the Aboriginal Advancement project is the site where Bennelong was ultimately buried.
