    5. 5. The Revolution Aristotle described two types of political revolution: 3.Complete change from one constitution to another 5.Modification of an existing constitution
    6. 6. The ImplicationsWhat we’re doing is delivering what we’re gettingA different outcome will require different/additional approaches
    7. 7. So What Were We Doing? • Primarily working one on one with a small amount of clients • Making a lot of assumptions about identity • Working in silos • Allowing one project to hold ‘Aboriginality’ for the organisation
    8. 8. Then something startedhappening… We started to ask questions
    9. 9. • Why individual client focussed work?• Does our staffing structure support our work?• Who else is meant to be doing this with us?• Do we have permission to do this work?• What does the data actually say about HIV and Aboriginal People in NSW?• What does identity really mean to Aboriginal gay men?• What does ‘community’ mean in a community based organisation• How do we find out?• Who is asking Aboriginal gay men what they think?
    10. 10. Was this a revolution? More ‘The law of small change’•We built on the foundational work that camebefore us•We found time and space in this transition•We used this time and space for reflection•We questioned assumptions about selfdetermination•We challenged ourselves•We sought partnership•We looked more closely at what the data wastelling us…and what is wasn’t…
    11. 11. Models of Service Delivery• Moving beyond the walls of ACON• Strategic Approach• Broader Reach• Effective Use of Resources• Places individual agency as central• Responsive rather than reactive• Structured, evidenced based practice• New staff structure
