Mid-career Workshop

Mid-career Workshop


A two day CNTA mid-career workshop was recently held with Queensland South Native Title Services (QSNTS) at New Farm, Brisbane. Thirty (30) people attended on both days with  a number of officers from the Queensland Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Land Services (ATSIL) Department and related units presenting on revisons to the QLD Connection Guidelines. QSNTS invited other NTRBs in Queensland to participate with NQLC and CYLC  represented by attending anthropologists.

Other issues on the two day agenda was the how to leverage the benefit of connection research for downstream processes including post determination contexts, cultural heritage matters, PBC design, and repatriation of research materials. QSNTS staff and consultants, together with QSNTS' community liaison officers, discussed complex scenarios and possible problem resolutions drawing on various perspectives and situational knowledge.

A workshop dinner was held at the Purple Olive in James Street New Farm- which we later discovered - was a favourite of Joan Meggitt, Mervyn Meggitt's widow.
