About this course

Welcome to the Come Walk With Us course, which is a cultural education program delivered in partnership between the University of Tasmania and Reconciliation Tasmania.

This Come Walk With Us 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.
