Social Impact Festival 2019: Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together Towards a Just and Sustainable Society

This year we have made a strong commitment to walking together towards a just and sustainable society. In co-creating this year’s Social Impact Festival we have been learning, listening and unlearning. We have realised that if we truly want to create a just and sustainable society then we need to embrace the spirit of ‘Voice, Treaty and Truth’. This has led to a collaboration with Aboriginal Elders for the shaping of the festival and its key events. We want to acknowledge that 2029 will mark 200 years since colonisation in Perth – and that we are 10 years away from that point. We are excited by what is now forming with the festival and beyond, and are looking forward to sharing this journey with you. Below, we have outlined the festival’s key events – these will continue to take shape and adapt as needed. Thanks for joining us as we continue to co-create what we think will be a significant festival and future journey together.
