National Reconciliation Week Events

National Sorry Day

At the heart of reconciliation is the relationship between the broader Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To foster positive race relations, our relationship must be grounded in a foundation of truth. Australians are ready to come to terms with our history as a crucial step towards a unified future, in which we understand, value and respect each other.

On our pathway towards reconciliation, Sorry Day on 26 of May is an important moment to remember the past policies of forced child removal and reflect on the sad and painful history of the Stolen Generations.

We invite you to join us at our exhibition launch to engage in challenging conversations or unlearning and relearning what you know.

Working with Vulnerable Population Workshop

This one day introductory workshop will improve an organisation’s capacity to work in a culturally safe and trauma informed way. When you complete this training, you will have a better understanding of trauma and symptoms of trauma as well as coping behaviours. You will understand the cost to self, cohort, faculty and university of not being trauma informed.

The training combines Western scientific knowledge and traditional healing principles and prepares participants to deal with lateral violence, burnout, anxiety, secondary and vicarious trauma.
