Welcome to the website for the Oceania Seating Symposium 2023. The Symposium is being held in Melbourne at the Melbourne Cricket Ground from 21 to 23 November. Information pertaining to the Symposium can be found on this website. We look forward to seeing you in Melbourne in November.
The theme for OSS2023 is Transformation: Changing Futures. After the disruption of the last few years due to the COVID19 pandemic, we have the opportunity to learn from our experiences and transform ourselves, our practice, our future and our societies. In an Australian context, embracing the reforms identified in the Aged Care and Disability sectors, and this theme reflects our embracing of the transformative changes that will come from this, including end user led services, products, and practices.
Even more transformative in Australia is the implementation of the Uluru Statement from the Heart, an invitation to the Australian people from First Nations Australians to walk together to find a better future. As part of OSS2023, we also have the fortune to engage with our New Zealand whanau as part of this journey in the field of wheelchairs and seating. We embrace the concept of transformation and invite you to attend OSS2023 in Melbourne for an exploration of changing futures together. __________________________________________________________________________
