30th anniversary interviews

To celebrate our 30th anniversary, we have commissioned a series of interviews which feature the diversity of people and projects the Forum has engaged with and the impact of the Forum’s work over the past 30 years.

ChangeFest 2019

ChangeFest 2019 was held over four days in November at the Kimberwalli Centre in the community of Mt Druitt in Western Sydney. This is the second year that over 600 people and organisations working in collaborative initiatives from across the Australia gathered.

Platform C launches

Platform C is launched by Collaboration for Impact in partnership with the Australian Government Department of Social Services, the Paul Ramsay Foundation, Dusseldorp Forum, The Australian Centre for Social Innovation and Clear Horizon.

Festival of Change 2019

In May 2017 Dusseldorp Forum began a collaborative, three-year process called the ‘Festival of Change’. It started with four community-based initiatives coming together to distil what works and why, share evidence and resources.

Australian Philanthropy Awards

In July we were honoured to receive the Philanthropy Australia Award for the Best Large Grant 2019 alongside Maranguka Justice Reinvestment and Vincent Fairfax Family Foundation for Maranguka’s Justice Reinvestment Strategy.

Worldskills -sharing skills across the world

It was 1997 and Tjerk Dusseldorp was standing on the station in St Gallen Switzerland when he noticed a young man dressed in his Australian uniform, a medal around his neck. He was 22-year-old Grant Stewart, a plumber from Wollongong NSW and the day before he’d competed in the WorldSkills International competition.

Connecting our past and future

This year Dusseldorp Forum welcomed a new Board Member Charlee-Sue Frail. Charlee-Sue came to know the Forum through her mentor Cath Brokenborough, Executive Lead Indigenous Engagement at Lendlease and their work together on Lendlease’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

A response from the heart

Dusseldorp Forum is proud to endorse the Uluru Statement from the Heart which asserts the sovereignty of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples that was never ceded, and we join the calls for voice, truth-telling and agreement-making.

Building stronger relationships

Once a much-maligned township, suffering from one of NSW’s highest Aboriginal youth conviction and incarceration rates, Bourke and its 2,500-strong population
