The program fosters a genuine appreciation for, and understanding of the significance of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, country, history and culture.

What's it   All About?

Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi is a two-day cultural   capability program that supports participants to reflect deeply on their   practice and challenge their world views and assumptions.  It focusses   on history, cultural safety, communication, relationships and partnerships.    The program fosters a genuine appreciation for, and understanding of the   significance of local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, country,   history and culture.

Our co-delivery of Yarn Up Tok Blo Yumi with   local Elders and community leaders ensures an authentic learning experience   as well as providing an opportunity to establish ongoing relationships.    The success of the program lies in the conversational delivery approach and   the structures that support people to have open and meaningful conversations   and to continue to build their knowledge and understanding through engaging   in reflective practice. 

What does   the program cover?

  • Building awareness of   Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture
  • Reflecting an awareness   of own and other cultural realities in work practice
  • Communicating effectively   with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people
  • Developing cultural   safety in workplace and professional relationships
  • Working in partnership with   Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities
