“I am really excited to see The Australian Dream go out to community and schools and continue the conversation we need to have on the key themes; cultural identity, racism, history & truths, resilience & reconciliation. The resources are available for free for anyone to use. I’m hoping that they will be used in every school in the country.” Adam Goodes
Culture is Life has developed educational resources that incorporate excerpts from the documentary to explore themes around Cultural Identity, History & Truths, Racism and Resilience & Reconciliation. The themes were guided by a collective of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders on our First Peoples Dream Team. Culture is Life are proud to collaborate with ABC Education to distribute these resources to schools and communities nationally from January 2020.
The #MyAustralianDream Campaign was created to give voice to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as a response to the film and the issues, rights and topics raised. Some featured interviews include Nova Peris (Former Athlete/Politician), Mitch Tambo (Singer/Songwriter), Sydney Stack (AFL Premiership player), Luke Carroll (Actor), Tom Calma (Aboriginal leader) and The Merinda’s (Musical artists). The campaign call to action was to start the conversation around what all our dreams of Australia looks, feels and sounds like so that we all feel safe, included and thrive.
