Workshop options
 Weaving with Sonya
Sonya Rankine is a Ngarrindjeri/Ngadjuri/Narungga/Wirangu artist who has been mastering the art of weaving for 25 years as a way of “acknowledging being Aboriginal,” she said. “My weaving is about reviving and maintaining culture and the tradition of Ngarrindjeri weaving through creating contemporary Aboriginal art”.
Painting with Iteka
 Iteka Sanderson-Bromley is a Narungga/Adnyamathanha/Yarluyandi woman. Iteka is an experienced dancer, artist and cultural educator. She has grown up being on Country and learning from her Elders about her culture and land her entire life. Iteka will lead participants on their own individual acrylic on canvas painting experience.
Nature journaling with Hannah
Hannah Jones has studied conservation and land management. Nature journaling is about observation and inquiry - no artistic skill is required, all you need is a curious mind and a love for nature. Collect samples of local native plants and learn how to journal them with pencil, ink and watercolour paints. Hannah will be your guide helping you to identify plants while providing tips and tricks on how to creatively record what you discover.


Speakers
Andrew Plastow
Andrew is a highly experienced and visionary school leader. He is passionate about creating opportunities for children to express themselves in diverse ways and to pursue their passions. Andrew is committed to working with families to build a strong College culture, which brings our values to life. He is a Kamilaroi man. 
"It was that frustration of Aboriginal children being seen in the deficit — 'close the gap, close the gap, close the gap'," he said.
"All of our Aboriginal kids come with incredible skill sets that just weren't being acknowledged in a very, very Western-dominated education system."
We are sure Andrew will provide you will insight into how educators can support both Indigenous learners and indigenous learning.

As a non-Indigenous educator, researcher, and co-founder of ‘Walking Together with Kaurna – Cultural Experiences for Children’ Liesl seeks to augment Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander curriculum opportunities in schools, with place-based connections and on Country experiences.
