Shaping our history together

Shaping our history together a narrative to stop racism photo

Shaping our history together, a narrative to stop racism
is a series of workshops, including a day out on Country, to share our past history since colonisation, talk about ways to reduce racism in our communities and finding ways forward to a more inclusive and resilient future. 


The 9 sessions will be run by Aunty Marilyne Nicholls and other Dja Dja Wurrung representatives, along with Emmanuelle Dubuc who is founder of Mirawara Outdoor Experiences Inc. Through our weekly sessions, we will discover Indigenous culture, especially Dja Dja Wurrung culture and talk about our common history since colonization. We will celebrate the end of term with a field trip on the cultural landscape of the Dja Dja Wurrung people: Mt Dharrengower (Mt Tarrengower).


This project comes as response to the Statement from the Heart, where Traditional Owners across the country, are seeking a Makarrata Commission to supervise the agreement making process between government and First Nations and truth-telling about their history (Statement from the Heart, 2017).  There cannot be reconciliation without acknowledging the continuing impact of colonisation on First Nation Peoples.

The sessions will be held weekly during term 3 for 9 weeks, starting on Thursday 15th July 6.30 and finishing at 8 pm at the Maldon Neighbourhood Centre.

Participants will have a reading packet available and specific readings will be selected weekly to engage in deep discussions during class time. You can register your interest at the Maldon Neighboorhood Centre.

Cost: $200 full price and $180 concession. Register interest: 54752093 or email.
