'Doing Good Work with Families'

Aged and Disability Festival Oct 3-7, 2016

The Aged and Disability Festival is a celebration and cultural exchange for Aboriginal elders and people with disability across Central Australia.

It is a great opportunity for cultural exchange and for active inclusion of old and young Aboriginal people who are often marginalized or excluded from cultural life due to limited mobility.

The Festival will be led by senior Aboriginal women, and will create inspiring good practice resources for Aboriginal communities and organisations working with Aboriginal elders and people with disability.
