AIATSIS National Indigenous Studies Conference 2011
Young and old: connecting generations
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population is relatively young. In 2008, almost half (49%) of Australia’s Indigenous population was aged under 20 years and a further 16% aged between 20 and 30 years with just 3% were aged 65 years and over.
The AIATSIS National Indigenous Studies Conference brings together multi-disciplinary expertise from across the Indigenous Studies sector, including researchers, policy makers, community members, academics, representative organizations, consultants, traditional owners and service providers. Whether your interest in the conference topic is from the perspective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander education, health, cultural heritage, arts, policy, sport, economics, language, anthropology, archives, IT or other equally relevant sectors, the conference presents a unique opportunity to communicate information about your research, projects and programs with a wide audience and to benefit from discussion around shared areas of interest.
