Call for contributions
In 2017 the Australasian Housing Institute will collaborate with the Aboriginal Housing Office NSW to provide a forum for housing professionals whose primary focus is housing for Indigenous people to exchange ideas and views on existing issues and future Indigenous housing needs. Thus, in May we will run the second Aboriginal Housing Master Class in Sydney and focus the June edition of HousingWORKS on the theme of Indigenous Housing.
We would like to invite housing industry professionals from Australia and New Zealand to participate in the discussion. We are seeking a mix of contributions from government, academics and mainstream NGOs and want to ensure that there is a contribution from every state and territory and that remote, rural, regional and urban issues are covered.
Please send us your article, examining one or more unique issues related to housing services for the Indigenous community, by Tuesday, 30 May 2017.
Your article may look at one of the following or any other relevant topic:
- Innovation in Indigenous housing
- Future direction of Indigenous housing
- Achieving positive outcomes for Indigenous tenants and communities
- Managing remote Indigenous community housing
- Culturally sensitive housing strategies
Please send us your article, examining one or more unique issues related to housing services for the Indigenous community, by Tuesday, 30 May 2017. Read our Contribution Guide.
