About this course
Come Walk With Us is a cultural education program delivered in partnership between the University of Tasmania and Reconciliation Tasmania.
This program is an innovative cultural learning opportunity that walks participants through the timeline of the range of government policies that affected the Tasmanian Aboriginal community. The program also incorporates an experiential exercise 'from the shore' demonstrating the impact of the arrival of Europeans, convicts and livestock on the traditional life and home of the First Tasmanians.
This program has been developed in consultation with Aboriginal people across Tasmania and celebrates diversity, by fostering broader understanding of cultural values and practices for and from Tasmania.
Who should do this course?
Come Walk With Us is a foundational three-hour cultural education program that does not require participants to have prior knowledge about Tasmanian Aboriginal history, health status and culture.
The program consists of a 3-hour facilitated workshop to enable participants to easily interact and engage in the learning in a safe and non-intimidating environment. A list of recommended readings and/or additional resources will be made available should participants choose to extend their learning in the subject matter.
There are no assessments associated with this course and all participants will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the conclusion of the course.
