This conference endeavours to bring the voices of some of Australia’s most recognized Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Scholars, Elders, Leaders and Educators to the forefront. It aims to enrich the professional development and practice of practitioners from multidisciplinary backgrounds. It will answer the many questions and assist mainstream practitioners in gaining a better understanding and clearer insight into working respectfully with First Nations Australians.

Our core objective and vision is to bring the voices of our Elders to the forefront, providing a platform for our Elders to share their wisdom and their knowledge in a culturally safe space. It also aims to bring together academics, scholars, health workers, social workers, community workers and practitioners from multidisciplinary sectors to come together to share their knowledge in an environment of mutual respect.

In addition, this conference will create an avenue for respectful discourse on First Nations Australians Ways of Knowing and Ways of Doing. It will include dialogue pertaining to the implementation of Traditional Knowledge through Research, Education, Culture and Traditional Practices. It will explore the multifaceted social, emotional, spiritual, environmental and political issues impacting on the lives of First Nations Australians in today’s evolving society.

Most importantly, this conference will create a unique opportunity for First Nations Australians and members of the wider community to come together in a spirit of unity, harmony, peace and respect. We extend a warm welcome to people from all walks of life from the grassroots community and to practitioners from both government and non-government sectors to attend.
