Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership
Changing the Narrative outlines the journey and the successes of the Lowitja Institute and the four associated Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) over our 20-year history.
The publication showcases how the cumulative efforts of the CRCs and the Institute have pioneered a new way of conducting health research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It’s an approach driven by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priorities – an approach developed by the CRCs, and embodied in the Institute.
The Lowitja Institute commissioned the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies to write a brief history of our organisation – including audiovisual recordings that highlight the vision of influential individuals. In addition, the writing, editorial and production work of the Lowitja Institute team has created the hard copy Changing the Narrative publication, and a companion e-book.
Hard copies of Changing the Narrative can be purchased for $50, or $35 for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community organisations.
This publication was authored by Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies & The Lowitja Institute in 2017.
An e-book with video and audio content is also available.
