Community, Culture and Collaborations – 8th Biennial K’gari (Fraser Island) Conference

This event is a collaboration between the Butchulla Aboriginal Corporation and the Fraser Island Defenders Organisation.
Fraser Coast Campus University of the Sunshine Coast

Saturday 31st August 2019

Keynote speakers: The success of conferences is the result of a lot of promotion and that promotion needs to begin early as does the selection and engagement of a Keynote speaker/s who are good drawcards around which we can help build the promotion.

The two keynote speakers agreed upon who have provisionally accepted are prominent Butchulla actor of national standing, Wayne Blair (“Redfern” and other TV series and plays) and producer (the movie “The Sapphires”) and leading social psychologist and advocate for wilderness experiences, Steve Biddulf, author of 10 Things Girls Need Most, Raising Girls, Raising Boys, Complete Secrets of Happy Children, and The New Manhood.

It is planned for Saturday 31st August to be held at the Fraser Coast Campus of the University of the Sunshine Coast. The plan is for the conference and cultural festival to run from 9.30 am to 9.30 pm with plenary sessions during the day, followed by a Butchulla cultural celebration from 7.30. It allows out of town guests to join a whale-watching trip before heading home on Sunday.
