AIATSIS and the University of Canberra will be co-convening the AIATSIS National Indigenous Research Conference 2017.

The conference, structured around the theme ’Impact, Engagement, Transformation’, will draw together researchers, policymakers, cultural and collecting institutions, the corporate sector and Indigenous organisations and communities. It will examine how we can more effectively target research efforts to achieve better policy outcomes and practice with lasting impact through transformative change.

Research plays a central role in creating transformative change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Questions of impact and engagement in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research are front and centre in this change. So too is the way in which the Indigenous research effort innovates to inform policy and practice around Indigenous development.

The conference will be held at Hotel Realm, Barton ACT from Tuesday 21 - Thursday 23 March 2017.
