SOCIAL IMPACT FESTIVAL EVENTS

This year’s festival will be hosted throughout the season of Djilba (August and September). We have a series of events during the first week of Djilba – Opening Week (August 3-9) – and we will soon be announcing other events around particular themes and topics.

With a growing national and international audience, and with social distancing restrictions still in place in Western Australia, we wanted to ensure we have a range of interactive, curated, and hosted online options for different events, especially the flagship Danjoo Koorliny Social Impact Summit, to ensure that everyone who wants to be part of this movement can be.


OPENING WEEK (August 3-9)

This pass includes:
– Early access to events and resources

This is an Aboriginal-led cultural event with original puppetry and the singing of a new moon song. (We will share a recording of the song so you can also sing along wherever you’ll be.) Register your interest here.

Virtual Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together Social Impact Summit. (Friday evening August 7 and all-day Saturday August 8.) The 2020 Virtual Summit will be just like being there in person with an interactive, participatory and hosted online experience. We will make use of some of the best online platforms available to give you a curated summit experience complete with a friendly greeting at the registration desk, networking chats over coffee or snacks, breakout conversations hosted by the team on-camera, exclusive virtual-only conversations and interviews with Elders, as well as front-row seats to all the in-person yarning panels and other presentations.

Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together Community Space. (Sunday August 9, UWA Business School.) This Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together Community Space will be a relaxed Sunday morning time where you are welcome to come in and see the artwork that’s been created during the festival, to have conversations, and to engage in simple community-building activities. There will be story, song, dance, art, and an experience of the six seasons. Register here.


THEMED EVENTS THROUGHOUT DJILBA (August and September)

 Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together Themed Events. The Danjoo Koorliny project leaders and team will be hosting a series of theme-related events during the season of Djilba. These events will flow on from the workshop sessions from last year’s summit, and may include fisheries and land, housing, children and families, health and healing, education, policy co-design, Uluru Statement from the Heart, Reconciliation/Conciliation, waterways, and more. Stay tuned for more information coming soon. Register here to stay up to date.

This year’s festival coincides with Homelessness Week. Because of this, the focus of Homelessness Week will be on Aboriginal housing and homelessness. We have been working together with Shelter WA and Gordon Cole (Chair of Noongar Mia Mia and board member of Shelter WA) who will host Homelessness Week events which will also form the Homelessness and Housing stream for the festival. Registrations and more information here.
