GENERATE 2019 // WORKING IN FIRST NATIONS CULTURAL CONTEXTS
Sovereignty, cultural competency and racial literacy
This workshop is designed to build the capacity and effectiveness of non-Indigenous workers to better support sovereignty and self-determined outcomes in First Nations arts, culture, education and community engaged practice. Facilitated by FCAC’s Indigenous Advisory Group, in this three-day workshop you’ll connect with Elders and Koorie community members, artists and educators as they share with you their first-hand knowledge and experience.
GENERATE is FCAC’s professional development series in contemporary community engaged practice. Be informed about best practice in the industry, and develop your leadership skills for social change.
WHEN: Wednesday 21, Thursday 22 and Friday 23 August, 10am – 5pm
COST: Organisation $900 / Independent $630 (3 days)
‘The GENERATE Working in First Nations Cultural Contexts program is more than just a training package, it is a life changing experience that forced me unlearn and then relearn everything I thought I knew and ultimately helped me re-evaluate the way in which I see the world. The course was personally and professionally challenging but I was able to achieve more than I expected through the generosity, wisdom and experience of the trainers and guest presenters. Understanding and coming to terms with race, colonisation, whiteness and privilege is not easy, and nor should it be. But this work is essential to living a wholehearted life. I cannot recommend this program highly enough.’
