Building on the Strengths of our Stories
Led by our Managing Director Leann Wilson, the Building on the Strengths of our Stories program is designed to provide greater insight into ‘who we are’ as Australia’s First Nation Peoples. The approach draws upon the ancient practice of storytelling where participants are engaged on a journey of truth-telling.
By unpacking the intentions of legislative frameworks enacted on First Nation Peoples, a depth of understanding is built around cause and effect and how this shapes current day circumstances and practices. The approach challenges participants thinking beyond the rhetoric and towards a truly shared space of understanding and collaboration.
It is a fantastic opportunity for workshop participants to build on the strengths of our collective stories and to celebrate our cultures.
The two-day workshop is designed to provide insights into the Nations Legislative history and the personal impacts experienced from First Nations People. The approach draws upon the ancient practice of storytelling, where participants are engaged in a journey of discovery, truth-telling and understanding.
Excellent presentation of some very challenging topics. Thought provoking, educational, excellent weaving of stories in the legislation and facts. One of the best presentations that I have been to. I felt engaged throughout the whole day. Thank you.
