Cleone Wellington - Waminda

"True Tracks" workshop was very interesting but so important to be informed, which now, we as a service can put policies and processes in place to protect our ICIP.

Hannah Davis -

The "True Tracks" workshop allowed me to develop a far better idea of ICIP protocols and equipped me with the tools I need to be able to implement processes to respectfully and appropriately engage with Indigenous people and organisations 

Shankari Nadanachandran - Ashurst

The True Tracks workshop helped me understand more about Indigenous Cultural IP and the importance of protecting it, for the creators of the work, the communities the work originates from and for Australians. The breadth and diversity of what constitutes ICIP was really interesting and an important reminder of its value. The workshop highlighted the limitations of existing IP law, the areas for reform and the different, deeper approach that is required for the protection of ICIP. The True Tracks Guiding Principles were practical and insightful. They challenged me to think about the ways we all interact with the creators and owners of ICIP, and the ways those interactions must be improved.   

Carolyn Hart - CSIRO

An excellent introduction to ICIP. It challenges me to take a very different approach to the traditional IP analysis.
