The 2020 Koorie Youth Summit - Connect, Heal, Grow: Determining our future

We have sadly postponed the 2020 Koorie Youth Summit until a later date, to ensure we keep our mob safe and healthy during the current public health situation. This is a preventative measure to support the health and wellbeing of delegates, our communities and the broader public.

If you have registered and would like a refund, please contact Fruitbowl Productions on 1300 663 450, or you can hold onto your ticket for the rescheduled Summit (TBA).

We are sending our love to all our Elders, families and communities during this challenging time.
Look out for each other, practice virtual socialising and keep strong 🖤

Our connection, healing and growth as Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander young people is symbolic of our culture, our people and our history. The 2020 Summit theme illustrates the collective wisdom of our past and present, as it supports us in determining our future.

The Summit is a space for us to gather from around the state to connect with each other, discuss what is important to us, be proud, learn, and share.

When we connect and gather as young people, we create space and energy to empower and inspire. When we heal, we understand and recognise the healing and strength within ourselves and our communities. When we grow, we are continuing in the footsteps of our ancestors, inspired by our people’s journeys and creating the footsteps for those that come after us.

Join us at the 2020 Summit to determine the future we want to create.

Watch this space – more info to come.

This event is for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people aged 18-28 years living in Victoria.
