Join us for a Vital Conversation about Australia’s shared history – opening hearts, opening minds
In the first of a series of Vital Conversations in 2018 and we are excited to invite you to join us for an intensive one day workshop exploring ‘Australia’s Shared History’.
We all learnt about Captain Cook and a “broad brush” history of colonisation but what do you know about Australia’s history from the Indigenous perspective?
With discussions around Australia Day increasing and the success of One Day in Fremantle, this Vital Conversation offers you the chance to take the next step in your personal understanding.
This one day intensive brings knowledge and deep insights into the shared history of Australians. It looks through the eyes of the First Australians and with this Indigenous perspective sheds light on a past we all share.
Specifically it will increase effective and respectful professional and personal relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians by:
- gaining knowledge of our shared history from an Indigenous perspective
- increasing awareness of the impacts which continue to affect Aboriginal Australians today
- learning to be comfortable and confident in the third space

When: 8.30AM – 4.30PM, Tuesday 27th February

Learn about Australia’s shared history
Cultural convergence utilises transformative education to shift unconscious bias and beliefs to bring us closer together as Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. By quietly examining ourselves within the context of Australia’s history, we step confidently into a space where we continue to learn from each other and acknowledge this history that belongs to us all.
This cultural diversity workshop follows a timeline of historical facts and incorporates knowledge of Indigenous world-views & perspectives.
