Cultural Awareness

Every organisation in todays world needs to employ Cultural awareness programs for their staff.  Be responsible as a corporate and/or global citizen and facilitate a Cultural Awareness program for your organisation and staff.  Many participants comment, ” Why weren’t we taught this at school, I just didn’t know this”.  You don’t know what you don’t know!  Be guided through a 200+year Hidden History workshop that is done is an interactive, engaging, hands on and guilt free manner.

Myself and an Indigenous Elder or community member will engage you in an interactive 3 hour workshop to unpack the Hidden History of Australia.  This 3 hour workshop is just a taste, all day workshops can be requested. The series of posters used, provides an illustrative guide depicting the impact of some past governments policies and practices that affected Aboriginal peoples of Australia.  These posters represent the story of ‘The Big Picture’ – A Hidden History’, because many people, both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal, do not know this part of history.  This workshop can be localised to capture the significant history of the land on which the workshop is being conducted.

This resource was developed by the FNQ Indigenous School Support Unit Staff, District Community Education Counsellors, Uncle Ernie Grant, Aunty Muriel Eddleston.  The Artists are Julie Haysom, Colin Higgins Jnr and Steve Grady.

Every year, I facilitate Cultural Awareness training with Aunty Honor Cleary and Aunty Beverly Hand for FOGS’s ARTIE program. ARTIE (Achieving Results Through Indigenous Education) and the University of Queensland – Education Faculty provide Cultural Awareness Training for their student mentors prior to them engaging with ARTIE students in schools.  This Cultural Awareness training ensures that the students make alignments with the cultural content and the schools context.
