The Bankwest Curtin Economics Centre together with Curtin University’s School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts invites you to the launch of a new report in the BCEC Feature report series, After the Siren: The community benefits of Indigenous participation in Australian Rules Football.

This report looks at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ participation in Australian Rules Football and examines the health and social benefits for both children and adults from involvement in community-level footy.

The report authors are BCEC Principal Research Fellow Associate Professor Michael Dockery and Dr Sean Gorman, Senior Research Fellow, School of Media, Culture and Creative Arts at Curtin.

The findings support the case for widening those benefits through the promotion of grass-roots football, particularly in remote Western Australia and through the newly evolving women’s league.

There is no charge to attend this event, but registrations are essential. Please ensure you confirm any dietary requirements, as these cannot be catered for on the day.

Please join us for morning tea with prominent government, industry and community leaders.
