    At the Hobart workshop, one of the participants mentioned some great resources available through the library to support a local cultural awareness journey.

    During the workshops we talk about how important it is to recognise the local people and identify working in ways which best suit the communities you work with. We also talk about how important connection is and that we’re all connected. These two concepts can sometimes feel like they’re opposed.

    When travelling to the Victorian workshops, our facilitator Nathan Leitch was pointing out local songlines which travel across the country from Victoria and into SA. This was a great example for my about how we’re connected and why relationality is so important for culture.

    Another example is the Seven Sisters songline – this article talks a little about this and describes how it stretches right across the continent. https://theconversation.com/songlines-tracking-the-seven-sisters-is-a-must-visit-exhibition-for-all-australians-89293

    • What changes or actions did you implement in your care practice?
    • What measures do you believe are most important in providing culturally appropriate and effective care and assisting First Nations people?
