What’s it about?



The Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi Project 2016 is designed to co-create culturally safe and inclusive organisations.  People embarking on these learning opportunities will explore their current understanding of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander culture, community and history using a participatory learning approach.  The bringing together of professionals across the health and community services provides opportunity for participants to reflect on their own practice frameworks as well as consider broader issues around workforce inclusion, Reconciliation, National partnership agreements eg. Service delivery, health, education, housing, economic participation.

Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi is best served when at least two participants (including a leader from the organisation) participate together in the whole series, with each session having a clear focus for conversation.  These face to face conversations (yarn ups) and an experiential Walk on Country event supports participants to contextualize and make meaning of the content suited to their own workplace.

Participants may have the opportunity to apply for Recognition of Prior Learning.These workshops are suitable for any staff undertaking work in Health and Community services which actively engage with Aboriginal and or Torres Strait Islander people and communities. As well as leaders seeking to make their workplace/organisations culturally safe.
