SNAICC – National Voice for Our Children Conference 2021 @ Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
Dec 6 @ 9:00 am – Dec 9 @ 5:00 pm

The conference is hosted by SNAICC – National Voice for our Children. SNAICC is the national non-government peak body in Australia representing the interest of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

A biennial event, every two years, this conference is convened to assist with the achievement of the SNAICC vision: An Australian society in which our communities are empowered to determine their own future; where the rights of our children, young people and families are protected; where our cultural identity and achievements are valued; and our children and families have access to culturally appropriate services.

We look forward to again gathering with our delegates and speakers from around the country to discuss our challenges and share our knowledge and experiences in raising happy, healthy and confident children in our communities.

A must attend conference for anyone working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and family services – we hope you can join us.

Given the continued uncertainty with the pandemic, the SNAICC team has come to the decision to postpone the 9th SNAICC National Conference to
6 – 9 December 2021.

While it is disappointing to have to reschedule, the overwhelming feedback from our members is that we want to come together on Yugambeh Country in person. Our priority is to make it happen, as we pride ourselves on being one of the biggest conferences to bring together communities from across the country.

We understand it may not be possible for everyone to be able to attend in person, and so our program will continue to be available in an online format, as well as face-to-face. Both options will provide access to keynote presentations, panel discussions, concurrent session presentations, as well as networking opportunities.

Held at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre

Weekly Reconnection with the Uluru Statement @ Online
Dec 8 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Led by Women’s Reconciliation Network

Dear Supporters,

A friendly reminder that Wednesday is the day we reconnect with the Uluru Statement together. You can use the links below to join in a Zoom meeting at 7pm or if you can’t then, because of other commitments, read it by yourself but knowing other people are also doing that.  We are building a people’s movement responding to the invitation from the First Nation’s Elders. I am so grateful to be journeying with you.

Below are just some of the reasons why doing so is important.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart is :

  • A living document given to the people of Australia to facilitate greater repair of our nation
  • It speaks of structural reform for First Nations People
  • Truth telling to really see the full history of the lands we live on
  • Makurata, resolutions and  agreements or treaty making
  • Cultural wisdom, gifts and generosity
  • Responsibilities of those who call Australia home

Reading it / hearing it keeps us engaged with First Nations people and our collective story despite all the other challenges around us, What happens in Australia otherwise is that First Nations people and their concerns and voices are pushed down the bottom of news and interest.

Please share the link as you feel.
