Monday 13th JULY, 2009 “I see where I belong (When I look at you)” with Jennifer Newman
You are warmly invited to the next meeting of the Facilitators Network on Monday 13th July, 2009
“I see where I belong (When I look at you) with Jennifer Newman”
Facilitators Network Celebrates NAIDOC week 2009.
NAIDOC celebrations are held around Australia in July each year to celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. NAIDOC Week 2009 will be held from 5 to 12 July.
NAIDOC stands for the National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee. Its origins can be traced to the emergence of Aboriginal groups in the 1920s which sought to increase awareness in the wider community of the status and treatment of Indigenous Australians.
Jennifer is a Wiradjuri woman and lecturer at UTS in Aboriginal Studies and Adult education.
She uses experiential education to help individuals celebrate their cultural identities but does this in a way that allows them to walk together comfortably with care and respect on Aboriginal land.
Jennifer will facilitate a session incorporating Sense of place, story and respect.
I see where I belong (When I look at you)
· When I look at you I feel where I come from.
· When I look at you I know where you come from.
· When I look at you I see where we belong.
