Culture & Connections

Riawunna Community Room

The Riawunna Community Room is a welcoming space for students to hang out, have a yarn, relax and to connect. We hold events throughout the academic year, such as Community lunches, morning teas, yarning circle, Community events, film nights, Community Program events and a variety of presentations.

Riawunna Community Program

The Riawunna Community Program is facilitated by the Aboriginal Student Success Officers or the Aboriginal Community Engagement Officers. The Riawunna Community Program showcases that Tasmanian Aboriginal culture is at the heart of the Riawunna Centre to support students and access for potential students. The Program strengthens our welcoming environment for students, staff and the Aboriginal community, through learning Aboriginal knowledges. The Program provides opportunities for Community members to access the University of Tasmania.
