The RAP Conference at Flinders University is a three-day event, scheduled from Wednesday, 22nd May to Friday, 24th May 2024. This conference is an enriching platform for staff and students to engage in a variety of cultural activities and discussions centred around the University's Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). https://www.flinders.edu.au/reconciliation-action-plan

The first day of the conference is packed with events and activities including a campus tour, an art workshop by Kuma Kaaru, and presentations from Colleges/Portfolios on their RAP initiatives.

The subsequent days continue to offer a blend of educational and cultural experiences. Highlights include a cultural tour of the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre at Warriparinga, Indigenous strategies presentations from Pro Vice Chancellor (Indigenous) Professor Simone Ulalka Tur and staff from the Office of Indigenous Strategy and Engagement, insightful discussions about Indigenous employment and the University's Indigenous Workforce Strategy, and keynote from Associate Professor Ali Gumillya Baker.
