How Unleashing the Power of 60,000+ Years of Storytelling Is Igniting Indigenous Leadership

About

This inspiring session explores how better career and educational outcomes can be achieved for young First Nations people through stronger connection to First Nations culture, country and the arts. The traditional Western model of education is failing for our First Nations peoples and through the stories of 3 impressive young First Nations leaders we explore how NAISDA (Australia’s National training institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people) takes a radically different approach by putting Indigenous culture at the core of a more effective education model. Traditional Western tertiary education achieves a course completion rate of 38% amongst our First Nations peoples whereas culture based training is achieving 75% course completion. The focus of this session is the careers and entrepreneurship in the arts sector that is being delivered from this culture based training approach. You will be inspired by these young Indigenous leaders and what is possible when you enable them to reconnect with their culture.

WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU IN 2024
