Growing up Aboriginal in NSW: Then and Now

Date: Tuesday 24 November 2020

Primary School
Time: 1:30pm – 2:30 pm

Time: 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Join us in an interactive Zoom session where students and teachers will have the opportunity to have a conversation with a “Living Library,” Uncle Richard Campbell, child #28, a Stolen Generations survivor from the Kinchela Boys Home, and with local Aboriginal student representatives from Macleay Vocational College.

Learners will be able to engage with Aboriginal perspectives, ask questions and learn about the experiences of our presenters growing up as Aboriginal people in the past and now, this free video conference brings our Living Library experts into your classroom.

Registrants will be sent an information package that includes a video link to be viewed in the classroom prior to the event, to allow teachers to prepare their students for a wide ranging and personal conversation with our Living Library subjects. Additional teaching resources will also be  provided that can be used following the event to supplement the classroom experience and link it to the Australian curriculum.

Questions will be posed to the speakers by a moderator. You may pose your questions to in advance, or via the chat function on the day.

This event is for classrooms in NSW. Each session is limited to 100 classrooms/schools.

This event has been provided through NAIDOC Local Grant funding, administered by the Commonwealth of Australia’s National Indigenous Australians Agency.

We hope you will register for our event!
