VMIAC UnConference 2023

7 & 8 December 2023, Box Hill Town Hall

Different Stories, Common Ground

Thank you for joining us in a celebration of diverse perspectives and lived experience at the VMIAC UnConference 2023.

It was an exciting two days, with catering provided by Indigenous owned and run Mabu Mabu. We hoped we have been able to achieve our goal of creating a space to centre the expertise of people with lived and living experience of:

  • Mental health challenges
  • Mental health consumer/survivor
  • Trauma, and/or
  • Emotional distress stemming from colonisation, racism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, sexism, ageism, and classism.

The theme of the UnConference is Different Stories, Common Ground.
