In 2022, we expect this to grow and evolve again as we put it into practice, and continue our learning journey. The threads are certainly not complete, and what we’ve developed here is specific to our social innovation – we’d encourage you to adopt and adapt from your organisation.
This work has been inspired by lots of people, over many projects. We’d particularly like to thank Uncle Tony Lovett, Dana Shen, Tyson Yunkaporta, Aunty Vickey Charles and Melanie Goodchild for sharing their perspectives. This work has been created with knowledge from Aborignal and Torres Strait Islander communities we’ve worked with, thinkers and practitioners and clients that we’ve worked with, and those that have written down or recorded their thoughts for others. We thank you all. For more on this topic, you may also be interested in listening to the podcast episode An Aboriginal lens on Co-design, a conversation between Aboriginal co-design practitioners Dana Shen and Aunty Vickey Charles, who discuss their work, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander principles for co-design, and what it takes to be a good ally.
