To connect at the end of this last day and the end of our Conference, please join us in an informal setting to reflect on the conversations and themes of the event. We are mindful that especially the topics of redress and decolonization are heavy and we would like to provide delegates with an opportunity to come together in a safe(r) space, ask questions and process their thoughts. This will be an unstructured session hosted by Miranda Jimmy and we invite all delegates and speakers to attend if they would like to connect.
The conversations started in Act I of the Joint Conference will continue during Act II, at the in-person event in Victoria this October.
