Program Description

The histories, traditions and cultures of First Nations Australians and their experiences of injustices following colonisation are largely unknown. However, there is a growing momentum among Australians to develop a fuller understanding and awareness of First Nations Australians histories and cultures.

Truth-telling is not a way to seek confrontation about the past. It is a positive pathway to a different, shared future. Join us to learn more.

Program Outcomes

Participants will:

  • strengthen knowledge about First Nations Australians histories and cultures
  • understand the concept of truth-telling – what it means for us in Lutruwita / Tasmania, what it means for us as teachers and what it might mean for learners
  • develop skills to embed truth-telling in your teaching
