About National Housing Conference Darwin 2019
The National Housing Conference is the largest gathering for the social and affordable housing sectors in Australasia.
The Conference is held every two years, convened by the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute (AHURI) in partnership with the state or territory government in the host city.
The NHC plays an important role in guiding the national dialogue on housing and homelessness priorities. The conference provides a platform for housing practitioners, policy makers and researchers to share, debate, celebrate and promote impactful ideas. Delegates will have the opportunity to be a part of the conversation, forge new partnerships, and work towards innovative housing solutions.
The 2019 Conference (the 11th in the series) will be held in Darwin for the first time. As Australia’s flagship national housing conversation, the NHC focuses on the big picture national challenges, with perspectives from delegates and speakers from every state and territory.
This year’s program will pay special attention to Indigenous housing and engage with Darwin’s community of thinkers and practitioners and learn about the Territory’s unique opportunities and challenges. The NT’s capital is the perfect platform for meaningful discussion around Indigenous housing experiences, as well as the major national housing policy issues.
We would like to acknowledge that this conference is being held on the traditional lands of the Larrakia people, and pay our respect to elders both past and present.
