Community Conversations returning in late July


Aboriginal Affairs will be returning to locations across the state in late July and early August 2017 to follow up conversations held in May through to July 2017 about the development of a NSW Aboriginal Languages Legislation.

During this second round, we will be:

  • Reporting back to communities on what we heard in the first round of conversations;
  • Discussing what changes we are proposing because of what we heard from communities;
  • Discussing the next steps after this round of conversations.

This second round will involve two hour discussions between community and Aboriginal Affairs staff. All community members are welcome to attend. Morning tea will be provided.
