Event description
A 3 hour interactive online workshop to gain an awareness of Aboriginal Culture, Values and Belief Systems.

About this Event

As part of National Reconciliation Week 2020 which runs from 27 May - 3 June Auspire – Australia Day Council WA presents this 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. The delivery style is authentic and emotive and we caution that at times, the content may reference abusive terms, phrases and/or language that may be considered offensive to some.

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 session will cover the following material

  • Explore 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 Australian society.
  • Contemporary vs traditional lifestyles, connection to country, community and kinship systems.
  • 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.

Please note this workshop is authentic and as such may contain or allude to strong language that could be considered offensive to some participants.
