This year’s Indigenous Focus Day (IFD) saw 64 delegates from around Australia get together at the State Library of Queensland in Brisbane on 7 June, a day before the fifth annual Broadband for the Bush Forum.
The aim of the day was to promote digital inclusion projects and address the opportunities for, and obstacles to, the digital inclusion of Indigenous Australians and organisations. The event was hosted by the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) and the Indigenous Remote Communications Association (IRCA).
