Community Impact Grant

After a long wait we have just been advised that our application for a City of Adelaide grant was successful! 
We are now planning an event across three significant Kaurna sites in the Adelaide CBD with buses to ferry people between. The ParkLands Events team has just approved our request for Sunday May 15th, so keep the afternoon free!

Walking Together with Kaurna event welcomed by community

Mitcham Council celebrated the success of our May 2nd family event at Wirraparinga with an article in their online community news. A second event the following weekend, also funded by the council and fully booked, was further indication that this learning experience is valued by the community. We hope to be invited to host this event again in the future.
 
These testimonials were part of many collected in our 'feedback box' at the close of both events:
 
'An excellent initiative. Most of us don't know what we don't know - helps us to have eyes to see!'
'Really informative, interesting and enjoyable. Both my daughter and I loved it. Thank you!'
'Fantastic afternoon. wonderfully presented. Thank you for providing this experience for me and the kids'
'I am pleased my children have had the opportunity to learn more about Kaurna culture. Thank you'
 

This week we were mentioned in Parliament!

After generously printing our Wirraparinga family event booklets, Sam Duluk (State Member for Waite) attended the May 2nd event and spent time connecting with the presenters and observing the cultural experiences families were involved in. Several weeks later during his address to parliament he spoke of his experience and the importance of these events in our journey toward Reconciliation.
Watch him mention us in his address to Parliament.

Professional Development Workshops for (EChO) Early Childhood Organisation

On May 20th we held 2 workshops for groups of educators at Morialta.

The sessions combined Kaurna culture, language and knowledge of that area as well as conversation around curriculum inclusion, pedagogy of place, the Uluru Statement from the Heat and the role of educators in Makarrata.
