Commemorating the anniversary of the national Apology, the Healing Foundation hosted a public forum on 12 February 2015 about healing and the Stolen Generations. Everyone around Australia was invited to attend and participate via the web.
The forum included guest speakers who are members of the Stolen Generations. They shared their unique life stories with a focus on how they have healed and continue to heal from trauma. The panel highlighted how their journeys include helping others to heal and how Australians can support this momentum either through personal, organisational or government level responses.
The forum took place in Canberra but was broadcast over the web as a live interactive seminar. The national audience contributed to the conversation by posting and tweeting messages to the panel via social media using the hashtag #TellingOurStories
