Leading your business through the corona

Leading your business through the Coronavirus Pandemic (Guidebook)


The pandemic not only impacts the safety of our Indigenous communities but also the growing Indigenous business sector. We wrote this Guidebook to provide Indigenous businesses with general advice on the legal issues arising from the impact of the pandemic. If you need specific legal advice, please contact us to discuss your matter.

Indigenous Business Australia COVID-19 information videos


We teamed up with Indigenous Business Australia (IBA) and Creative 33 to create five informative videos on managing your business during the Coronavirus pandemic. It covers general management, employer obligations, financial obligations, managing legal contracts and insolvent trading.

In May 2019, Terri Janke delivered the Australian Museums and Galleries Association (AMaGA) commissioned landmark document 

First Peoples: A Roadmap for enhancing Indigenous engagement in museums and galleries.
