The Community Art Project will be facilitated by Aunty Wendy Lotter. The mural will represent community & individual participation in the Referendum and the cascading effects of this historic event.

    Culture and Community Responsive Training


                          Tuesday 13 June, 2017

Wingecarribee Shire Council in partnership with Ngaran Ngaran Culture Awareness would like to offer Aboriginal Culture Awareness training, to community services and organisations or interested people that seeks to increase awareness of cultural difference and to help ensure our working relationships are as effective as they can be.


Culture and Community Responsive Training is appropriate for any group that has had limited or no introduction to Aboriginal people and culture.This training also incorporates high level engagement and awareness strategies for the more advanced organisations.


The workshop is adaptable and has been delivered in a variety of settings and age groups from schools to corporate environments. It is designed to create a framework for establishing strong relationships, enhanced understanding, and respect for Aboriginal culture. In fostering these principles, our aim is to assist organisations to transform good intentions into action on their journey towards reconciliation.


CCRT is a 4 hour workshop, held in a classroom format with a twist of cultural elements including Yidaki Story performance (didgeridoo). It takes participants through three core components of Aboriginal culture, plus an overview on understanding and engaging in key aspects of community.


Workshops are coordinated by Ngara Ngaran Culture Awareness director and lead facilitator Dwayne ‘Naja’ Bannon-Harrison.
