The 2015 SNAICC Conference was the first conference to be held at Perth’s Convention Centre, located on the northern bank of the Swan River in the land of the traditional owners, the Noongar people. The conference attracted over 1000 attendees from across the country and was our first biennial conference from what was originally a triennial gathering. There was representation from all states with a diverse number of organisations participating, including over 50 per cent participation from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and participation from many not-for-profit and government organisations and agencies.
ngallak koorlangka – for our children
Following three days of sharing, learning and planning among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, leading industry experts, policy makers, researchers, government representatives, other non-government organisations, a final list of resolutions were agreed to provide better systems and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. As we move forward we will be looking forward to reviewing these resolutions hopefully with stronger outcomes and meeting with you all again in Canberra in 2017.
A comprehensive report on the 6th SNAICC National Conference was produced following the event, providing a review of the acheivements that came out of the conference, as well as analysis of delegates, exhibitors, and presentations.
Videos of the plenary sessions from the 6th SNAICC National Conference are freely accessible via the SNAICC website, providing access to presentations from the ensemble of expert speakers.
