Closing the Gap

The Social Justice Report of 2005 called for the comittment from the Australian government to ahieve equality for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in health and life expectancy within 25 years. Non-government agencies responded with a National Indigenous Health Equality Campaign in 2006, and launched the Close the Gap campaign in 2007.

We were grateful to be asked to develop this first report in partnership with the department.

Honouring the spirit of reconciliation.

We honour the spirit of reconciliation with Indigenous peoples in Australia, and around the world. We believe in demonstrating a commitment to building respectful, cooperative relationships based on understanding between cultures, communities and people.


Our impact with The Australian Institute of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Studies

How might we develop a foundational digital-first audience engagement strategy and impact evaluation, that brings together the breadth of cultural knowledge, education and engagement initiatives of this organisation — and ensure that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledge and cultures are recognised, respected, celebrated and valued?

Learn more about our research, impact evaluation and digital transformation strategy with AIATSIS.

Our advocacy for the return of first nations cultural artefacts.

We advocate strongly for the return of first nations cultural artefacts — especially those closest to our hearts.

The return of the Parthenon Marbles to their home in Athens (Greece), has been a position we've held for many years; and we continue to advocate as often, and as loudly as we can for their return.


Freedom for first nations cultures around the world.

Sometimes its comfortable to focus on one first nations culture and not others — our advocacy for the freedom, right-of-return, sovereignty, human rights and self-determination of Palestinians in their homeland is something we are proud of, and continue to support.
