The Taking Control of our Heritage Conference is going virtual

Thursday 26 August 2021 3:29am

As we experience COVID-19 restrictions across the country, it is clear that a face-to-face event in October will not be possible.

So, it is with regret that we will be shifting the Taking Control of Our Heritage Indigenous Cultural Heritage Conference 2021 to an all-digital platform. This has been an immensely difficult decision for conference organisers. While we recognise that this may be disappointing it may also not come as a surprise to those who have supported the conference through its postponements.

Since there is still much to be discussed about Cultural Heritage protections, both nationally and locally, it is essential that Traditional Owners remain central to these processes.

To keep you involved in the legislative review, an exciting lineup of keynote speakers and headline discussion sessions will be live-streamed on Wednesday 27 and Friday 29 October via our interactive virtual platform. To provide some escape from screen fatigue, we have chosen not to hold these events back-to-back.

Given the changed format of this event, all delegates, speakers and sponsors will receive a full refund. All existing ticket holders will be emailed by 30 September to confirm their refund banking details and again after the refund has been transacted. Please email if you have any questions about this process.
