Bridging the gap: effecting cross-cultural change in Indigenous communities



This seminar will provide an opportunity to access real information and skills to make working in the zone that exists between Aboriginal culture and the mainstream more productive. It will explore a model developed with the Yolŋu people of Arnhem Land, a model that allows the people to build their own future and enables you to have more effective interactions with Indigenous communities. Topics include international community development theory; empowerment processes; effective cross-cultural communication; and Traditional Law, politics and kinship.

This course is suitable for those working with remote, rural and urban Indigenous people, creating policy or interested in learning more about cross-cultural dynamics and Indigenous culture. Hosted by Richard Trudgen, author of acclaimed book Why Warriors Lie Down and Die, in partnership with Witiyana Marika, a founding member of internationally renowned band Yothu Yindi, and Dianne Gondarra, Yolŋu language consultant and presenter on Yolŋu Radio.

Registrations close 12 midnight Wednesday 2 October 2013.
