Public information sessions, workshops and webinars

Find out about the proposed new system for managing and conserving Aboriginal cultural heritage and provide feedback on the draft legislation by taking part in our public information sessions, workshops and webinars.

To help you understand the proposed new system, we are planning a 2-stage public information process involving 19 locations across New South Wales.

  • Stage 1 will involve information sessions, at which you can find out more about what is being proposed and ask questions.
  • Stage 2 involves workshops, to be held about one month later at each location, which will enable you to discuss issues and provide feedback once the draft legislation has been released.
