Nyiyanang wuunggalu! Symposium
February 19 @ 8:30 am - February 20 @ 5:00 pm AEST$380
AIATSIS is hosting a second symposium on Indigenous culture and policy in February 2020.
In the Dhanggati language, nyiyanang wuunggalu means ‘let’s work together’. Our use of this phrase highlights that, although governments commonly reference ideas about ‘co-design’, ‘place-based’ policy, and working ‘with’ Indigenous peoples, these ideas are often not translated into practice.
Through this event, AIATSIS will explore what it means to develop policy and programs in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities. By bringing together community leaders, policymakers and researchers, we aim to shape contemporary policy and practice as well as identify the skills required and challenges to overcome.
