Event description

Description

This event is a part of Sydney Design Festival 2019: Accessing Design

Welcome to Country is the online destination offering an opportunity for visitors to connect directly with Indigenous tours, events and cultural experiences across Australia. Tourism offers a way for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to live on their country, earn an income and share their culture, on their own terms. The Indigenous tourism sector is growing significantly each year in both demand and supply, however there are challenges connecting across channels and cultures.

In this discussion, First Australians Capital CEO, Jocelyn King, will chat to Service Design Lead, Sasha Abram about some of the challenges faced by Indigenous entrepreneurs in starting and running their own tourism businesses. They will discuss working in a cross-cultural design team on Welcome to Country, and will share some of their design process so far, including: how to respectfully build a community-endorsed marketplace, that is co-designed with Indigenous tourism operators, whilst also aiming for best practice in the digital design space.

This event will also share a taste of some of the range and depth of incredible experiences that are available nation-wide and the way in which we are using design to support these businesses to grow and flourish.

Ticket includes one free house beverage.
