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 the Festival of Change 2018 here.
On February 24 2015, Dusseldorp Forum hosted a full day professional development program for teachers and learning practitioners to explore in depth how to utilise more creative learning strategies within their learning space.
Sydney Theatre Company’s Wharf Theatre was filled with excitement, colour and creativity in February 2015 as we kicked off our highly anticipated Creative Collective event to showcase the children and young people who are thriving in creative learning initiatives across NSW and celebrate 25 years of Dusseldorp Forum.
Dusseldorp Forum has committed to tackling system reform as part of Stronger Places, Stronger People – a five-year commitment by community, federal, and state governments and philanthropy to work together.
Philanthropy has the potential to provide long-term capital that can drive innovation in government policy. In 2010, philanthropist Julius Colman entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Victorian Government.
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.
