What’s it about?

Deadly Cards are a tool for supporting your service to ‘yarn’ its way to cultural competence, exploring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, language and culture, evoking timeless ways of knowing and being.”
To help support incorporating the Deadly Cards into your program, practice and ongoing learning environment we invite you to this two hour introductory workshop.
In this workshop we weave the Deadly Cards into the facilitation to give you some ideas on how you can actively utilise them in workplaces and other environments.
The workshop aims to take participants on a learning journey using the Deadly Cards as a window through which to explore and share the elements that are essential to enhancing inclusive practice. These elements include who we are, where we are from, including glimpses of our own world views and the integral role of building a safe space for the honest conversation to happen.

We will be working alongside Traditional Owner groups from Yuibera peoples of Mackay
