2018 Koorie Youth Summit - Connect, Create, Celebrate
The 2018 Koorie Youth Summit took place on 13 and 14 June at the Pullman on the Park Hotel located on Wellington Parade, Melbourne, directly across from the traditional gathering grounds of the Kulin nation. Over 200 deadly young people attended the two day event.
This theme, ‘Connect, Create, Celebrate,’ highlighted the importance and need for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people to connect, not just with each other, but connect with our culture and land. It is through this connection that we are able to create a future we want to see and to celebrate our successes.
The logo was designed by artist Hayley Millar-Baker, a Gunditjmara woman who uses digital technologies to revive story-telling. Hayley explores themes of culture, connection to country, identity, relationships, cultural practices, and values.
