Multicultural Hub – Green Room
506 Elizabeth Street, Melbourne VIC 3000
Safe and effective practice for young people from diverse backgrounds and communities (Co-presented with First Nations Community member)
This Cultural Bridging Workshop is founded on the deeply held belief that people genuinely want and need to understand and connect with each other and they will do so when they are in environments that promote curiosity and creativity.
The intention underpinning this one-day workshop is to create opportunities to bridge the space between one’s own culture and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture(s). The participants will explore, in a non-blaming and non-shaming way, the continuum of the similarities and differences between mainstream and First Nation Cultures.
The training has very few slides, is experiential in nature and hopefully will be fun.
Areas addressed (learning outcomes) will include:
This workshop will also be supported by Robyne’s friend and colleague, Dr Jacqui Sundbery, YSAS General Manager of Research and Practice.
