Community Engagement 

Aboriginal Affairs NSW supports a range of engagement opportunities to advocate for community empowerment through Aboriginal Cultural Heritage.


The International Council of Monuments and Sites, General Assembly 2023 (ICOMOS GA2023) held in Sydney bought together heritage professionals from over 120 countries. Our Aboriginal Cultural Heritage team spoke about NSW proud Aboriginal culture and need for reform.

Aboriginal Affairs facilitated sessions on the NSW reform process and Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Information System. Interest from delegates on Indigenous cultural heritage rights and self-determination through leadership of cultural heritage management is a strong indication, there is a need for stronger protection of Aboriginal cultural heritage. 

Koori Knockout 2023

The NSW Aboriginal Rugby League Knockout is a highly anticipated annual event for Aboriginal communities to meet and celebrate the role sport plays in building strong culture. Aboriginal Cultural Heritage team were in attendance to meet visitors and provide information on the development of NSW Aboriginal Cultural Heritage reform.  Spending time with youth and Elders to yarn about the importance of caring for and sharing culture was vital. Described as a 'modern day corroboree', it was clear to see that Aboriginal culture is alive and thriving. 


The Aspirations Board was a place to share significance of culture and identity.
