Working to help start widespread conversation around the topic of race and politics, the Australian Indigenous Education Foundation (AIEF) has recently run a print campaign that features a painting of an Indigenous prime minister that's emblazoned with the slogan "This will never happen." The advertisement comes about as part of a new marketing campaign to start a conversation regarding race relations in Australia amidst unsettling new research that reveals a whopping two thirds of those polled believe they'll never see an Indigenous prime minister take office.

Paired with the hashtag #IndigenousPM, the AIEF campaign is an ongoing attempt movement to help break down the perceived barriers for everyone in the country -- regardless of race -- and help connect the people on a more universal basis. With a solid dollar amount of funding attained, the AIEF will continue on with future campaigns to help spark change.
