How deep connection to culture is keeping children safe and supported.
September 6, 2022 - September 6, 2022
Children thrive when they live in families and communities with a positive sense of identity and culture.
But 200 years of dispossession and dislocation – along with today’s outdated systems – means that many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families and children have been displaced from their culture.
This webinar will hear first-hand stories about what culture is, what it means and how it is being used by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to create safe and supportive environments for children.
Together, we can build a future where all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children have the opportunities to grow up safe in their families, strong in their identities, and connected to their cultures.
