Photos from the 6th SNAICC National Conference, held in Perth on the land of the Whadjuk Noongar people from 15-17 September, are now available online.
Regardless of whether or not you were able to make it to the SNAICC Conference in 2015, you can now visit the Conference website to view photos of exhibitor booths, delegates at the social events, speakers from the various panels and workshops, and performers at the Closing Corroboree.
Check out the fantastic shots taken by local photographer Natasha Gillespie and try to spot your friends and colleagues amongst the crowd.
A headcount of conferences delegates now provides us with an interesting snapshot of who attended the event, and from where they travelled.
The growth in the number of attendees at the last few SNAICC National Conferences was so rapidly approaching full capacity that, to continue to accommodate the concurrent session program, it was decided to shift the conference from a triennial to a biennial event.
Overall attendances in 2015 were again very good with 932 delegates attending.
A total of 385 delegates from 122 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Organisations attended the conference; there were 388 delegates from 134 mainstream and non-government organisations, and 162 delegates from 50 government organisations.
- 41 per cent of delegates came form Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.
- 41.6 per cent came from mainstream non-government organisations
- 17.4 per cent came from government agencies
A comparison of the participation of delegates from different states and territories is provided below:
As shown, this demonstrates a very good overall representation across most states and territories from most regional and remote communities from children’s services and agencies.
