About this Event

Revisiting Aboriginal Wellbeing – a Celebration of Regional Partnerships will bring you practical stories of a growing community of non-Aboriginal and local Aboriginal communities working in partnership to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal people living in North Coast NSW.

Explore a large range of North Coast NSW poster presentations while networking with others working towards better health for Aboriginal communities.

Revisiting Aboriginal Wellbeing is based on the principle belief that Indigenous health must be approached from a holistic view, which encompasses body, mind and spirit. This regional showcase will be based on culturally responsive 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.
