CAYLUS has supported Sid Anderson and Matthew Brown from Papunya to get to Melbourne this week to attend a forum that is being organised by the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) Global Cities Research Institute. The forum brings together speakers with firsthand experience of issues associated with men’s health in the context of sport. Through the sharing of experiences, it aims  to highlight fresh insights into meaningful ways in which young Aboriginal men can engage in sporting activities whilst fulfilling family and community obligations and retaining a connection to country.

Sid and Mathew will certainly have a lot to contribute at the forum, check out below a recent article from Land Rights News where Sid talks about the need to build bush footy comps in order to invest in things that stay in remote communities and to keep young people from getting into trouble when they go to Alice Springs for footy.
