DHML 2024: ACT-ION! ACT for Indigenous Outcomes Now!

Update 14/2/2024: Apologies to anyone who tried to register for our lecture and found it didn’t work – there was a setting that restricted registration to those with Zoom accounts. Thanks to the team who worked out what was going on and updated the setting – should all be fine now to register, whatever your email address. Please let us know if any other problems.

After a break in 2023, ANTaR ACT’s annual lecture returns in 2024 with the theme of ACT-ION! ACT for Indigenous Outcomes Now!

In anticipation of the October 2024 elections in the ACT, the David Hunter Memorial Lecture (DHML) 2024 highlights the need for urgent action from both the government and the community to improve outcomes for First Nations people.

We will hear from amazing women working at the front lines trying to bring about meaningful change for First Nations children, youth, and families. They will talk about what has and hasn’t been working and encourage everyone to work together to improve the lives of First Nations people and communities in the ACT.
