Engaging with Indigenous Culture in your Classroom

Friday 19 May 2017, 9am – 3.30pm

Get ready to celebrate Reconciliation Week with some practical learning activities for engaging with Indigenous culture with your students.

Teachers will visit the Heide scarred tree, Yingabeal and learn about the areas’ local cultural sites with Wurundjeri Elder, Uncle Bill Nicholson.

In this program, participants will be introduced to an education resource about Yingabeal that was created by the Heide Museum of Modern Art and the History Teachers’ Association of Victoria. It examines concepts such as preserving Indigenous artefacts and cultural practices, way-finding, significant beliefs and land management. The resource covers all concepts included in the Levels 7 and 8 Victorian Curriculum: History Depth Study – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and Cultures and can also be used as content material for Indigenous topics and the Intercultural capability across other year levels.

The day will also include a focus on deep listening and art making with Indigenous artist Robyne Latham.

Cost $190 Education Member/HTAV Member $150

Includes museum admission, workshop materials, lunch & refreshments from Café Heide.
