Wiltshire+Dimas were instrumental in orchestrating the sixth and final seminar in the distinguished Murru waaruu (On Track) Seminar Series, taking great pride in executing this project for the Australian National University’s First Nations Portfolio. The seminar, titled ‘Niiringal (the day after) Implementation of Uluru Part 4: The right institutional arrangements’ was a pivotal gathering that drew participants from many parts of the world.
The Murru waaruu (On Track) series was a coordinated program of six evidence-based intellectual seminars held over the course of 2023, designed to shift the current Australian First Nations economic development policy to one that has a much greater focus on facilitating and supporting economic self-determination by, and for, Australia’s First Peoples. They were led and facilitated by the First Nations Portfolio – a branch of the ANU Executive.
The concluding seminar was titled, ‘Niiringal (the day after) Implementation of Uluru Part 4: The right institutional arrangements,’ and featured prominent First Nations leaders and entrepreneurs, public figures, policymakers, scholars and industry authorities. Deliberations were held on how new policy frameworks will reshape existing institutions like the Indigenous Land and Sea Corporation (ILSC), Indigenous Business Australia (IBA), and the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC), while potentially creating new institutions to support economic self-determination.
To wrap up the Murru waaruu (On Track) Economic Development Seminar Series for 2023, at the conclusion of this final seminar, attendees joined the First Nations Portfolio for drinks to celebrate and reflect on the shared journey.
