Event description
A half-day interactive workshop to gain an awareness of Aboriginal Culture, Values and Belief Systems.

About this Event

Auspire – Australia Day Council WA presents an Aboriginal Culture and Awareness workshop. Aboriginal Cultural Awareness is about having some knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal People's histories, Values, Belief Systems, Experiences and Lifestyles. This workshop also explores the impacts of colonisation and how these still play out today with our First Nations' Peoples and mainstream Australia.

The session will assist participants with information and understanding that can improve communities and workplaces for both aboriginal and non-aboriginal people. Basic aboriginal cultural awareness and understanding can facilitate real and lasting change through changed attitudes and behaviours at both a professional and personal level.

The half-day session includes morning tea and is being held at the Constitutional Centre of WA, home to Reconciliation WA, an Auspire strategic alliance partner.

The session will cover the following material

• What are the barriers between Aboriginal peoples and non-Indigenous Australians?

• Significant moments in history that have shaped the way Aboriginal Australians are today.

• Cultural beliefs, customs and values and their role in mainstream Australian society.

• Contemporary vs traditional lifestyles’ connection to country, community and kinship.

• The importance of self-determination and identity.

Key benefits and learning outcomes

• Increase positive engagement

• Minimise miscommunication

• Improved confidence with awareness of cultural differences

• Improved stakeholder relationships

• Demonstrate your RAP policy in action (if relevant)

The session is facilitated by Mr Danny Ford, a Noongar man and senior traditional custodian of Whadjuk Country, with connections to the wider Noongar Country and Aboriginal communities across Western Australia.

A tax invoice is provided for tax purposes.
