AIATSIS Culture and Policy Symposium 'Nyiyanang wuunggalu! Indigenous insights into effective policy engagement and design'
Dates: 27-28 November 2019
Location: Canberra, ACT
Overview: In the Dhanggati language nyiyanang wuunggalu means ‘let’s work together’. The 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. The AIATSIS symposium 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.
