We strongly value local knowledge, expertise and experience. As part of the Festival of Change 2018 we met and talked with community members from our partner communities to better understand what their community and the work of our partners, means to them.
Please click on the portraits below to meet some of the people who live in our partner communities of Bourke NSW, Kabulwarnamyo NT, Doveton VIC and Logan in QLD. Their voices and aspirations guide our work everyday. Read more about theFestival of Change 2018 here.
Local knowledge and stories create positive change in Burnie
The whiteboard in Kylie Burgess’ office tells a story about the power of community. It’s covered in notes and ideas about turning local knowledge and lived experience into positive change for the community of Burnie in Tasmania’s north-west.
Dusseldorp Forum acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia and the Traditional Custodians of the Country on which we work and live. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and to Elders past, present and future.
