INVITATION: Community wellbeing from the ground up: A Yawuru example

Written on the 1 August 2016

INVITATION: Community wellbeing from the ground up: A Yawuru example The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre together with the Centre for Aboriginal Economic Policy Research and The Kimberley Institute invites you to the launch of a new report, Community Wellbeing from the Ground Up: A Yawuru Example.

At some point in our lives, we have asked ourselves one or all of these questions. What matters most in life? What makes life worth living? What makes you happy? What makes you feel good? What makes you flourish? What are important life areas? What and who should government allocate resources to?

DATE: Friday 12 August 2016

TIME:11.30am - 1.30pm

VENUE: The Civic Centre, 27 Weld Street, Broome, WA 6725

COST: There is no charge to attend this event, but registrations are essential

This report addresses these questions by outlining the development of wellbeing indicators that are from the ground up, working with the Yawuru in Broome, Western Australia, thereby prioritising the voices and inputs of Indigenous women and men in the conception and measurement of wellbeing. The report uses a mixed methods approach to explore the wellbeing of Yawuru women and men through stories, as well as the Yawuru Wellbeing Survey, to paint a localised and multi-dimensional experience of wellbeing.

Please ensure you confirm any dietary requirements, as these are not able to be catered on the day.
