Aboriginal Elders Workshops
Aboriginal Elders Workshops to design an “Elders’ Voice” to support our journey to treaty.
Elders have an important and leading role to play in guiding our community towards treaty. We are seeking to speak with Aboriginal Elders in Victoria to hear your views and aspirations on the design of an Elders’ Voice model that will advise and support the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria (the Assembly). The Assembly will be the state-wide body of Victorian Traditional Owners (selected by the Victorian Aboriginal community) to work with government to establish a treaty framework.

Time: 9 am – 12 pm
Location: Murray Valley Aboriginal Cooperative
Who: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders living in Victoria
What: Contribute to the design of an Elders’ Voice model that will advise and support the First Peoples’ Assembly of Victoria on treaty matters
When: Tuesday 7 May, 9 am – 12 pm
