Promoting cultural safety and respect for our First peoples

FD 3 33

AUG 8: at 9am - 2pm

In our fear of 'getting it wrong' or offending our First Peoples and their cultural ways, it is easy for educators to become trapped in avoidance. This workshop boosts confidence and motivation to create culturally safe and respectful environments for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander peoples.

You will be guided on how to promote greater understanding of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander ways of 'knowing and being' in every day practice and in curriculum decisions. Through learning about the events since Invasion, you will become motivated to take action to redress unfairness. 

You will engage in experiences to:

  • identify cultural safety issues in your centre and consider ways to create a welcoming and culturally safe environment
  • discuss strategies for improved cultural safety using resources, communication techniques and work practices to promote partnerships
  • learn meaningful ways of demonstrating respect in your every day curriculum for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people

Workshop facilitators: Andrea Isitt & Goothala Doyle (Danny)
