Changing the Narrative in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research: Four Cooperative Research Centres and the Lowitja Institute: The Story So Far

Changing the Narrative outlines the journey and the successes of the Lowitja Institute and the four associated Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs) over our 20-year history. The publication showcases how the cumulative efforts of the CRCs and the Institute have pioneered a new way of conducting health research in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It's an approach driven by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priorities - an approach developed by the CRCs, and embodied in the Institute.

The Lowitja Institute commissioned the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies to write a brief history of our organisation - including audiovisual recordings that highlight the vision of influential individuals. In addition, the writing, editorial and production work of the Lowitja Institute team has created the hard copy Changing the Narrative publication, and a companion e-book.
