Hello from Hope Vale IKTC

Hi this is Shirley Costello, the photo above is from the Hope Vale Indigenous Knowledge & Technology Centre (IKTC) . This is going to be a great year again and this morning, other agencies met in the IKTC finalising our community calendar of events. It is just so packed, and also very very exciting.

It is wonderful that as indigenous people we can combine our culture with technolgy, plan, debate, discuss then enjoy the benefits of great community togetherness through our events.
I look forward to hearing all about other IKC's Culture Love Week, as ours is coming up in the second week of June.
