I have been invited to present in Mildura on Friday of this week at a conference convened by Cultivator Inc. The subject I am presenting on is Walk Together, the Collaborative Systemic Change Pty Ltd design for working between different cultures. I am indebted to Alex and Emma for their interest in the concept of Walk Together and the subsequent invitation.
Go to http://www.cultivator.net.au/ to see more about the concept.
The theme of all Cultivator Conferences to date has been on the concept of creativity and its benefit for rural and remote communities in terms of creating futures. It seems that the ideas being propounded in Walk Together are seen as creative. I think from a non-Aboriginal perspective, they can be seen as very creative. Most of my Aboriginal friends and colleagues, however, would see them as natural elements in their ways of knowing and doing things. As I always say at conferences where I present, the origins of Walk Together lie in the experiences I have been privileged to have had with Aboriginal/Indigenous people.
