National Disability Services in the Northern Territory is hosting a new and exciting one-day festival on Saturday, 13 October 2018 at the Darwin Convention Centre.

The festival will feature three major events:

Big Thinking on Inclusion Conference

The Big Thinking on Inclusion Conference is the premier disability conference in the Northern Territory.

During the day, Dylan Alcott OAM and comedian Harley Breen will inform, challenge and allow you time to explore innovative service delivery models. This session will be a cracker, with Dylan as keynote speaker and Harley Breen facilitating a panel on inclusion with Sam, Khoa (from Taboo) and two locals with lived experience.

In the Two Hours of Power in the afternoon, we will hear outstanding presentations from local service providers, participants and researchers, representing a wonderful cross section of innovation and inclusion in the disability industry. It will be a facilitated panel session with presenters given 10 minutes each for their presentation, with audience members having the opportunity to ask questions.

This is an inclusive event! We encourage people with disability, their carers or family to join in the conversations. A lower registration rate is available for these groups (a saving of around $100). Please contact Kali Ioannou at  or on 08 8930 2802 if you're interested in this opportunity.

Showcasing Quality, Innovation and Talent

This showcase is an excellent opportunity for organisations and individuals to network and market and sell their products and services directly to the general public and up to 200 conference delegates and NT businesses. Delegates will include: chairs, board members, chief executives, senior executives, managers, coordinators, team leaders, and frontline workers from disability service organisations, as well as people with disability and government officials.

There is free public entry to this event.
