Event description

Description

Do you want to make a difference in relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians?

It’s a challenging path to navigate different lenses on history, violence, inequality, stereotypes and strong emotions. Walking this path requires courage, creativity, humility, deep self-reflection and a sense of humour!

This is a workshop for anyone who is considering, or is currently, working or volunteering in an inter-cultural context.

Working Together Way will use storytelling, play and creative processes to explore the barriers and bridges for working together across cultures, histories and generations.

Our workshop will explore a number of tools that both presenters draw on in their facilitation and stakeholder engagement work as well as honouring the knowledge of group participants. A key focus of the workshop will be to ensure that our approach privileges and embraces cultural differences whilst recognizing the significant role that our own cultural biases play in any work that we do. Our workshop is set to both challenge and encourage participants to open the Pandora’s Box because as legend goes at the bottom of that box are the most profound insights and gems that will make a difference in the work that you are doing.

Be part of creating the future, join us in building a new way forward a Together Way.
