Professional Development for Teachers - Refugee Camp In My Neighbourhood - Thursday 11 August 2022

About this event

The Refugee Camp in my Neighbourhood Project is a simulated refugee journey delivered in the Whitlam Institute within Western Sydney University from 1 - 19 August 2022. It aims to raise awareness about human rights and celebrate the contributions refugees make in our local community. Teachers are invited to take a specific professional development tour of a simulated refugee experience. Through the tour you’ll experience the journey of a refugee and gain a better understanding of the challenges they face as they are looking for safety and arriving in Australia.

Tours are delivered by guides from a range of refugee and asylum seeker backgrounds.

The tour will help you:

● Understand how the refugee experience can impact well-being.

● Develop your understanding of risk factors for this group.

● Develop strategies to improve access and your ability to engage effectively with people from a refugee background.

Tours take up to 2.5 hours. Please arrive at least 15 minutes before start time and allow for travel and registration processes.
