ANTaR Qld holds a range of gatherings and activities across the year, often in collaboration with other organisations and sometimes independently.
This might be a Yarning Circle or a discussion panel on key issues such as Treaty or Voice.
It might be a film night, a bus trip to explore the history of ongoing colonial impact or a walking tour. It might be a Sea of Hands event, a lunch or coffee gathering and chat seeking to make connection and help understanding. It might be a stall disseminating information at a larger public event (the Woodford Folk Festival, a university public address by leading Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander speakers).
We also support and publicise the work of other bodies, for example, supporting Survival Day, Sorry Day, Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC events.
ANTaR Qld works with a range of both Murri and non-Indigenous organisations to hold or support others holding these and associated activities.

ANTaR Qld provides modest support to mob undergoing hardship. We are not set up to provide on-going or substantial support and have no source of funding beyond community donation. Nevertheless we try to respond where we are able to. We provide assistance primarily through networking with other organisations and referrals to support bodies. We also, however, offer some support in kind or in funds, mainly through West End Community House, where Kylie Waldron (the ANTaR Secretariat) is based.
