We’re looking forward to meeting with First Nations peoples from across the world and will be presenting two workshops, ‘Filmmaking and Truth Telling in the Educational Context: An Exclusive Premiere of the Final Episode of The Australian Wars Documentary’ and ‘Reshaping our learning environments through Indigenous ways of knowledge sharing. Supporting culturally safe and appropriate spaces, educators and resources for our young people to thrive in a western education system.’ More information on how to attend these workshops below.

‘Filmmaking and Truth Telling in the Educational Context: An Exclusive Premiere of the Final Episode of The Australian Wars Documentary’ with Rachel Perkins, Belinda Duarte and Shelley Ware.

Join us for an exclusive, world premiere of the final episode of the land mark documentary series The Australian Wars. Filmmaker Rachel Perkins will be joined by Professor Daryl Rigney in a conversation hosted by Shelley Ware following the screening. Filmmaking can illuminate the untold stories of First Nations people, bringing these stories into schools and homes and breaking what has been locally called the ’The Great Australian Silence’. This series explores the warfare across the Australian continent as colonisation unfolded. Compelling viewing, The Australia Wars contributes to truth telling in Australia and will resonate deeply with First Nations people globally who have resisted the powerful forces of imperialism and its legacy.

‘Reshaping our learning environments through Indigenous ways of knowledge sharing. Supporting culturally safe and appropriate spaces, educators and resources for our young people to thrive in a western education system’ with Belinda Duarte, Shelley Ware, Thara Brown and Jayden Oakley.

The workshop aims to create a safe space to discuss topics that we believe are integral in reshaping and redefining our current western education systems for a safe, inclusive and sustainable future where our First Nations young people can not just survive but thrive. And where all young people feel safe and valued, aware of our true histories and impacts to inform a healthier future.

Culture is Life’s Aboriginal educators will share learnings from our First Nations led, young people engaged & co-designed with senior cultural guidance approach, sharing practical examples of how schools can increase understanding and skills to support cultural outcomes and embed First Nations cultural content, values and approaches to wellbeing through key themes including Cultural Identity, Histories and Truths and Healing through Story and Art.

The workshop will explore approaches to increasing awareness and better understanding of our nation’s true history and ways to promote access to more First Nations-led and co-designed educational materials, training and tools.

We will facilitate discussions on how our colonial histories have damaged and impacted the nation’s wellbeing, the current impacts of past policies and racism, and how we collectively heal through learning and valuing our true histories, cultures and peoples.

This interactive workshop will model Culture is Life’s process of curriculum development and training for teachers and students including:
– How to to nurture participants’ connection to Country through a guided meditation and mindfulness activity
– Sharing existing resources and how they are used in schools and classrooms.
– Helping teachers feel supported to teach about the importance of connecting to and caring for Country and First Nations histories, cultures and peoples.
– Literature and film examples where participants will consider ways to strengthen their own connection as well as delivering First Nations knowledge in a variety of settings.

Sustainability and caring for Country is a strong theme throughout our organisation’s strategic plan and we are honoured to share some of our work and learnings. The workshop will be facilitated through both ancient and modern lenses of First Nations people, guided by young voices and led by our education team and Fullaship program leaders.

“I come from the sacred lands of Lake Mungo, my grandmother's country, which actually gives us the incredible story that our old people have been here for at least 60,000 years. And the evidence of those oral stories is very important, not only to us Aboriginal people but to the world and of course the education sector.” - Aunty Vicki Clarke (Mutti Mutti/Wemba Wemba)

We're announcing the winner of our Valentine's Day competition! 🖤

We asked our followers to give us their go to self-care tip and we loved this one: "My key tip to ensure good self care is consistently being aware of what I need, and ensuring that I connect with land and mob regularly."

We couldn't agree more! Self-awareness or self-regulation, and connecting to Country and community is crucial for our mob's wellbeing ❤️‍🩹

Thanks again to our friends at @kinya_lerrk for the beautiful wellness hamper, which will be in the mail soon for our winner to enjoy 💌

Today marks the anniversary of the National Apology to the Stolen Generations, who suffered continuing trauma due to a history of government policies of forced child removal of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

‘[The Stolen Generations are] as much a part of Australia’s history as Captain Cook and Burke and Wills. We still need to own the whole history of this country and be honest and courageous. It’s the only way we’re going to move on. That’s why we created the resources for schools and students, so they don’t have to find out about the stolen generations as adults.’ - Uncle Archie Roach (Gunditjmara (Kirrae Whurrong/Djab Wurrung) and Bundjalung)
