Learn about the history, beliefs, experiences and values of Aboriginal people in Australia, during this Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Workshop.

Presented by Auspire – Australia Day Council WA and delivered by Noongar leader, Danny Ford OAM, this entry-level workshop delves into the past, looks at the present and discusses how we can improve communities and workplaces for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people for the future. While this workshop focuses much on Wadjuk Country and broader Western Australia, the content and theories can apply Australia-wide.

The session will cover:

  • The barriers between Aboriginal peoples and non-Indigenous Australians
  • Significant moments in history that have shaped the way Aboriginal Australians are today
  • Cultural beliefs, customs and values and their role in Australian society
  • Contemporary vs traditional lifestyles, connection to country, community and kinship systems
  • The importance of self-determination and identity.

Key benefits and learning outcomes:

  • Increase positive engagement
  • Minimise miscommunication
  • Improved confidence with awareness of cultural differences
  • Improved stakeholder relationships
  • Demonstrate your Reconciliation Action Plan policy in action (if relevant)

The session is facilitated by Mr Danny Ford OAM, a Noongar man and senior traditional custodian of Wadjuk Country, with connections to the wider Noongar Country and Aboriginal communities across Western Australia.

A tax invoice is provided for tax purposes.
