Registration

An invitation to you as participants

If you do not have a formal presentation and prefer to be a participant, please come and join us for three days of discussion, lateral thinking, and understandings informed by thinkers and doers from national and international policy makers, researchers and communities of practice in First Nations affairs.

The framework for the Conference and Festival is intended to accommodate diverse thinking and engagement, including those who might want to question and reconstruct current approaches to Indigenous policy making.

Throughout the conference we will be engaging in participatory practices. There will be boxes located throughout the conference locations as idea and feedback hubs. We will also be using the mobile app mentimeter. Conference delegates and participants will be invited to download this app which will be used throughout workshop and participatory sessions to allow the audience to provide feedback to questions and ideas and to ask questions.
