For thousands of years, Indigenous knowledge systems have formed and shaped Australia’s environment. To make cities better for people and biodiversity we need two-way sharing between Indigenous experts and non-Indigenous researchers and practitioners.
The CAUL Hub was proud to launch the Three-Category Approach Toolkit at the Koorie Heritage Trust in Melbourne in November. Created by Indigenous researchers, communicators and designers, the Toolkit supports cross-cultural work through a workbook and workshop. It guides non-Indigenous researchers and practitioners through three categories: communicate, collaborate and co-design.
Mandy Nicholson, Wurundjeri-willam (Wurundjeri-baluk patriline) artist and Traditional Custodian of Melbourne and surrounds, gave an Acknowledgement of Country and spoke of her hopes for the Toolkit in supporting greater Indigenous participation.
The Hub is also hosting a series of practical workshops in Canberra, Wollongong, Perth and a second workshop in Melbourne. To read more about the Three-Category Approach and to register your interest in a workshop, click here.
