Given the unprecedented impacts of COVID-19, the NZ organisers, in consultation with the AAS Executive Committee, have made the difficult decision to postpone the event to the end of 2021.

In the wake of the police shooting of Kumunjayi Walker, the AAS stands in solidarity with Yuendumu community and the pursuit of justice for Kumunjayi. We grieve with the Warlpiri families, who have lost a son, grandson, great-grandson, nephew, cousin and partner. We heed the voices, perspectives and leadership from Warlpiri communities, their analyses of the situation and the conditions from which it arose, and their recommendations for change.
