Whittlesea Aboriginal Gathering Place Advisory Group

Are you interested in joining the Whittlesea Aboriginal Gathering Place Advisory Group?

Council and members of Whittlesea’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community are looking to work together to develop an Aboriginal Gathering Place (AGP) within the municipality.

Help us create a welcoming, inclusive and culturally safe space where all Aboriginal people can connect and have a sense of belonging, as well as having access to activities, programs and services which strengthen our culture and enhance our wellbeing.

If you would like to register your interest to become a member, please complete the below application form.

 

Background:

The idea of an Aboriginal Gathering Place in Whittlesea has been driven by community leaders. The City of Whittlesea (COW) is seeking applications from local Aboriginal people to be appointed to the Aboriginal Gathering Place Governance Group.

The Aboriginal Gathering Place Governance Group will be self-determining, operating under the Reconciliation Australia principals of Respect, Self-determination, Equity Justice, and Partnerships.
