The first regular event organised by the Freilich Project was a series of annual public lectures on themes related to bigotry. The inaugural Freilich Lecture in Bigotry and Tolerance was given by ABC journalist Philip Adams in 1997. In each year since, expert speakers from different professions have presented on this theme and enabled conversations to occur across academia and the broader community.
