Following the success of last year’s conference held in Alice Springs, the Rirratjingu Aboriginal Corporation and Northern Territory Police, Fire and Emergency Services will once again host this conference with a difference.
All delegates will travel to the remote Aboriginal community Yirrkala in Arnhem Land, some 1000km east of Darwin, Northern Territory.
This conference offers a unique opportunity to engage with Aboriginal Elders, hear from leaders in the anti-violence space and embrace the outback setting in an extraordinary three-day learning symposium presented in an outdoor marquee overlooking the Gove Peninsula.
While the 2017 conference set the scene for wider discussions about the effects of violence on Aboriginal communities, the 2018 conference seeks to engage attendees through a range of workshops and empowerment training opportunities, to reduce the spate of domestic violence across the country.
Engaging police from across Australia and Australasia, keynote speakers from around the world, CEOs and professors leading the discussions, national media partners and politicians; this conference offers Aboriginal engagement and discussions that are real, heartfelt and honest.

We recognise the difficulties in hosting a conference in a remote region however this exclusive event will allow attendees to collectively action and generate solutions to common problems; such as sharing local grassroots family violence reduction ideas that can evolve into broader community initiatives.
We all need to share our strategies, discuss the challenges and identify ongoing solutions that will reduce Aboriginal victimisation and incarceration rates. If you have a project you would like to have presented by a representative of your organisation then you are most welcome to do so.
