The Bunuru Social Impact Summit is the pinnacle of the Festival. The previous Summits have inspired large-scale systems change, designed to help us all become better carers of everything through shifting cultural, social, environmental and economic outcomes.

The Bunuru Social Impact Summit will bring together diverse thought leaders, change-makers, artists, and innovators from across Western Australia. They will present their unique perspectives, experiences, and insights to explore how Aboriginal culture has, since colonialism, gone from surviving to thriving.

For 2024, our theme is Culture: Survival, Resilience, Strength & Celebration. 2024 also marks five years since the inception of Danjoo Koorliny, the halfway point of a 10-year journey towards the 2029 bicentenary.

The Summit is a celebration of Aboriginal culture, values, and achievements. The conversations will be culturally affirming and will challenge the status quo. New ways to address social, economic, and environmental challenges will be found while building and strengthening how Aboriginal people want to be represented, both now and beyond Danjoo Koorliny’s 2029 vision.

Our celebration will feature a series of engaging and diverse speaker sessions, cultural workshops and experiences, panel discussions, performances and inspiring keynote presentations. It will focus on a wide range of cultural themes and community-led activities for everyone to participate in as we continue our journey to drive change for future generations.

The Bunuru Summit will be held at the beautiful Poolgarla Parkland, Kings Park. We have some exciting add-ons like Bush Tucker / Talks & Tasting by Dale Tilbrook, Bush Medicine with Vivienne Hansen and Male & Female Cultural Walking Tours.
