Event description
BSW Dhelk Dja Action Group invites you attend the Annual Indigenous Family Violence Conference in Geelong.
This conference has developed a reputation for excellence in Aboriginal expert presenters, thought provoking addresses, challenging thinking and excellent venues, and this year is no exception.
Our event this year event is entitled Healing through Reconnection to Culture, and brings together Aboriginal and non-Indigenous leaders in Aboriginal culture, prevention and intervention programs to address family violence in the Aboriginal Community.
Our guest speakers include Alan Thorpe, Director of Dardi Munwurro, family violence and healing organisation, and Indi Clarke, project leader at Culture is Life Aboriginal youth ******* organisation. 
Elders from the Warrnambool Women's refuge Council will also present about their work in developing an Aboriginal Women's refuge in the region, and Renee Fiolet will speak about the development of a phone app for local Aboriginal families seeking support for family violence.
Healing works best when solutions are culturally strong, developed and driven at the local level. Join us in working together.
