Closing the Gap Priority Reform 4

It’s that time again – the NSW PR4 Team are getting back on the road to consult with the Aboriginal communities of NSW regarding Closing the Gap Priority Reform 4. Success for this Priority Reform would see Aboriginal communities having ownership and control over their information, stories, knowledges, arts and so on.

Within our upcoming round of workshops, the PR4 Team will provide an overview on what we heard during last year’s community workshops for Aboriginal Data Sovereignty & Governance. We will then talk through what it could look like for communities to develop and practice their own Aboriginal Data Governance, including what reforms and resources might be needed to support this in NSW.

Our first week of workshops will include the following locations:

Tuesday April 2nd, 10am – 2pm: Newcastle 

Wednesday April 3rd, 10am – 2pm: Port Macquarie

Thursday April 4th, 10am – 2pm: Grafton

Friday April 5th, 10am – 2pm: Tweed Heads
