Event description

Description

The Centre for Education Statistics and Evaluation (CESE) in partnership with Aboriginal Education and Communities Directorate are pleased to invite NSW Department of Education staff to attend the 2019 NAIDOC Celebration on Tuesday 9 July. The event is also supported by the Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group, Human Resources and Great Place to Work.

This year’s NAIDOC theme explores voice, treaty and truth and connects to 2019 being celebrated as the United Nations International Year of Indigenous Languages.

The 2019 NAIDOC Celebration will feature three guest speakers and a musical performance from a special guest. The event will be followed by lunch and cake. Limited seats available or join us via Skype (details below).

The speakers

Dr Fabri Blacklock, BA, PhD

Dr Fabri Blacklock’s family are Nucoorilma/Ngarabal people from Tingha and Glen Innes and Biripi people from Dingo Creek in NSW. She is an academic, artist, curator and educator who is passionate about improving equity in education for Aboriginal people. In 2014, she graduated from the University of Western Sydney with a PhD where she recorded oral histories with her Elders and documented her family’s artworks and stories.

She has secured over $1 million dollars in research funding for Aboriginal educational development projects and is committed to embedding Aboriginal research methodologies, pedagogies and perspectives into mainstream education.

William Trewlynn

William is a proud Aboriginal man with traditional ties to the Nucoorilma people of Tingha and Dunghutti people of Woolbrook NSW. William attended Emu Plains Public School, where he struggled with reading and spelling until his Year 4 teacher took notice.

Today, William is a lead Aboriginal strategist and Managing Director for InCulture and YarnnUp. He has over 12 years’ experience in Aboriginal Affairs and Aboriginal Employment and Strategy. He contributes his success to his Year 4 teacher who changed his life, by acknowledging and acting on the alternate learning need of an Aboriginal student.

Charmaine Mumbulla

Charmaine Mumbulla is a Kaurna and Narungga woman from South Australia and is the winner of the prestigious National NAIDOC poster competition for 2019.

Charmaine started as an educator and social justice lawyer, but now runs a creative agency, Mumbulla Creative, focusing on Indigenous design and education. Using bright colours and organic shapes, her designs are influenced by natural elements found throughout the traditional countries where she lives and works.

Charmaine will speak on her lived experiences and how positive actions by NSW Education create positive building blocks for success for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.
