AIATSIS and the University of Canberra co-convened the AIATSIS National Indigenous Research Conference 2017.

The conference, structured around the theme ’Impact, Engagement, Transformation’, and brought together researchers, policymakers, cultural and collecting institutions, the corporate sector and Indigenous organisations and communities. It examined how we can more effectively target research efforts to achieve better policy outcomes and practice with lasting impact through transformative change.

Research plays a central role in creating transformative change in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Questions of impact and engagement in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research are front and centre in this change. So too is the way in which the Indigenous research effort innovates to inform policy and practice around Indigenous development.

The conference was held at Hotel Realm, Barton ACT from Tuesday 21 - Thursday 23 March 2017.
