Culture & Connections

Riawunna facilitates a number of cultural programs that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students and the University of Tasmania can access.

Riawunna Centre Community Room

The Community Room is a place to hang out, have a chat and relax over lunch. We often hold events such as Community Lunches, Film Nights and presentations in this room.

Riawunna Community Program

The Riawunna Community Program showcases that culture is at the heart of the Riawunna Centre, strengthening our welcoming environment for Aboriginal students and staff, fostering learning and highlighting Aboriginal knowledges, held by the Tasmanian Aboriginal Community.
