A big thank you for the Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together Policy Co-design Master Classes on Thursday September 17 (First Nations) and Friday September 18 (for everyone) near Bold Park. These workshops were held in partnership with the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, with co-hosting by Ezra Jacobs-Smith and Shaye Hayden together with the Danjoo Koorliny leaders.
Please find in this email scribing from Friday by Shenali Perera (with a contribution from Millie Penny), as well as some photos from Friday.
As mentioned on Friday, please feel free to go through the workbook in the weeks ahead. We will be in touch soon to schedule a catchup session on Zoom to reflect on the workbook and any relevant learnings. If you would like to purchase any further prototype workbooks for others, please contact us here.
Below you will also find a link to the video Babakiueria, which was shared by Colleen on Friday.
We look forward to continue shaping with you and others what policy co-design looks like in this state in the years ahead, especially as we go on danjoo koorliny / walking together towards 2029 and beyond. As Noel said, "It's about us as a collective."

About the Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together
Social Impact Project & Festival Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together is a large-scale, long-term systems change project designed and led by Aboriginal leaders to help us all walk together as Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people towards 2029 (200 years of colonisation in Perth) and beyond, be it in Western Australia, Australia or globally. The leaders of Danjoo Koorliny Walking Together are Dr Noel Nannup OAM, Dr Richard Walley OAM, Professor Emeritus Colleen Hayward AM and Carol Innes, working in partnership and collaboration with numerous other Elders, leaders and organisations. They have made it clear that if we are talking about social impact, Aboriginal people have had a blueprint for social, ecological and cultural harmony for more than 60,000 years, and that this can be of benefit to everybody and everything. The Danjoo Koorliny Social Impact Festival is an annual event that brings us together to see what has shifted in the last year and to help us set our focus for the year(s) ahead.
Ngalla kaadijt, Wadjuk Noongar moort, keyen kaadak nidja boodjar. Ngalla ni wer kaartidjin.
We wish to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land we live and work on, the Wadjuk Noongar people. We acknowledge Wadjuk Noongar and all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders, their people and their land and waters where our work has an impact. We are on a journey of listening and learning.
