  • (1888PressRelease) December 30, 2015 - The overarching aim of the conference is to assist with the journey of healing and to act as a medium and provide opportunities for an open and frank discussion where not just ideas are shared but also have the potential of further uniting First Nations peoples of Australia and to highlight to government that our journey is far from complete. This year's national conference is a lead up to the 2017 World Stolen Generations Conference which coincides with Australia's 20th Anniversary of the Bringing Them Home report.

    As part of our commitment to grassroots communities, fifty percent of the conference agenda items are allocated to community programs and services. Hence, we are calling for papers for the 2016 Stolen Generation: Bringing Them Home Conference so that we may engage with the community and members of the public who either have interest in or had been affected by issues regarding the removal of Indigenous children both in the past and in the present.

    Papers are being called for in the areas of community initiatives in relation to healing, reintegration of individuals and groups affected by previous and current government policies, sharing of testimony and personal journeys, music and songs for the background or soundtrack of the conference, successful community programs highlighting initiatives which brings us to where the future is leads us, papers which showcases how government policies affect us today and projects which promotes the establishment of Stolen Generation networks.
