On 18 & 19 February 2020, the Centre for Healthcare Knowledge & Innovation (the Centre) will host a celebration of regional partnerships as part of its Revisiting Aboriginal Wellbeing series. This two-day event is based on the principal belief that Indigenous health must be approached from a holistic view, which encompasses body, mind and spirit.
A Celebration of Regional Partnerships will showcase a range of culturally responsive North Coast NSW partnerships based on the themes of:
- Connection to land or country.
- Connection to spirituality and ancestors.
- Connection to family, kinship and community.
- Connection to mind and body.
Listen to and reflect upon the stories of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, artists, early childhood educators, consultants, health and social care providers, community service and community program leaders. Draw from, nourish and build relationships and gain practical, culturally inclusive strategies to write into your everyday practice.
Register before 31 January 2020 and attend both days, plus the dinner for just $125! (Accommodation is available at Angourie Rainforest Resort for an additional cost.)
