It will provide a forum for sharing current thinking, research, good practice and engagement pilots, both within the settlement sector and with other diverse stakeholders.
The conference will attract key innovators with an interest in how settlement can contribute to developing a productive multicultural future for Australia. These innovators will include local and international academics and cultural thinkers, seasoned and early career researchers, experienced and emerging settlement practitioners modelling best practice, government and non-government planners, business and employment industry groups, and intergenerational communities — new and established, rural and metropolitan.
The program will include presentations by key speakers from a diversity of disciplines, forum discussions and themed interactive sessions. The program will showcase best practice and will include artistic performances, exhibitions, displays of literature and resources from participating groups, and launches of new initiatives.

• Conference reception on Wednesday 27 June
• Conference Dinner on the evening of Thursday 28 June
• Community pre- and post-conference workshops
