True Tracks®: a pathway to Indigenous engagement

True Tracks® is a unique professional development workshop that will enhance your Indigenous engagement and increase your understanding of Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP), or Indigenous cultural heritage.


Do you need guidance with:

  • Engaging Indigenous suppliers?

  • Employing Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders?

  • Utilising Indigenous knowledge and cultural heritage material (e.g. visual art, plant knowledge, languages), but not sure who to ask or how to do it?

  • Reproducing an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander artwork, but want to know the best approach? 

  • Understanding how the leading agencies and corporates are managing their Indigenous engagement?

  • Realising a calm, holistic and proactive approach to Indigenous issues will be more effective than an urgent, stressed, band aid approach?

"I found this workshop extremely useful and I am now reading the True Tracks book. I am more aware of the gaps in my knowledge - I have a lot of reading to do! However, I have started and will continue to find ways to weave True Tracks principles into my work. This workshop has been a great start in helping me to see copyright law - and the concepts of authorship and ownership- in a different way."
