Building Bridges Seminar Series @ Reg Byrne Community Centre
Oct 5 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

We cordially invite you to a new series of Building Bridges on four Wednesday nights starting on 5th October 7:30-9:30 pm at the Reg Byrne Community Centre, cnr Darcy Rd and Fyall Avenue in Wentworthville. Reconciliation for Western Sydney (R4WS) has offered these opportunities to learn with and from Indigenous people for the last twenty-five years. We are happy to meet in person again this year to strengthen our connections.

Several sessions will have a Western Sydney focus. Indigenous presenters or people who worked closely with them for many years will guide all sessions. All are experts in their field and eager to share their wisdom and experience with the community at large and be in dialogue with the participants. We are encouraged by a growing interest in Indigenous insights and experience in our multicultural community. It is good to be welcomed to this country by the true owners and custodians and learn more about their culture and perspectives. Moving ahead with the Uluru Statement and the significant knowledge of First Nations people is indeed in the interest of all Australians and our common future.

The evenings include the following topics and aim to meet your interests and questions:

Oct 5: The Uluru Statement from the Heart and Education for All

Giving Youth a Voice, Nicole Laupepa
Teaching School Children Aboriginal Language

Oct 12: Truth Telling Then and Now I

ABLAZE! The Story of the First Aboriginal Film Maker
Reconciliation Journey–One Western Sydney School’s Perspective, Chris Haberecht

Building Bridges is included in the City of Parramatta’s community engagement strategy.  It is free, including a supper and a chance to meet with the presenters and others interested in these matters.
