If you put your cursor on the HOME label at the top left of any page of the website you will find access to a set of sub-sections, the first of which is a Website Tour.
During the time I have been developing Sharing Culture, I have learnt a lot about Indigenous healing, historical trauma and a range of related matters. I’ve spent much time thinking about the nature of the problems that need addressing and their potential solutions. You might like to check out the summarised versions of my reflections.
I’ve also summarised the approach I’ve developed for our overall Sharing Culture initiative, an approach that is deeply rooted in education and storytelling. You can also read a summary of our progress to date.
My blog can be accessed by clicking the tag to the right of Home, DAVID’S BLOG. I have changed the Iocation of Annalise Jennings’ blog, which can now be accessed from Annalise’s Blog label under DAVID’S BLOG.
Under the ABOUT US section, you can find two new labels which describe our current work. The first describes the rationale and planned development of our Education & Advocacy resource.
The second, Voice of the Rivers, comprises seven pages which describe a new project I am developing which will involve creating a powerful voice of Indigenous peoples living in the area of the Daly, Katherine and Waterhouse Rivers in the Northern Territory.
This project will involve a collaboration with our Sharing Culture Advisors Miriam Rose Ungunmerr Baumann, Pip Gordon and Miliwanga Wurrben, amongst others. I’ll talk more about this project next week.
I’d also like to remind you of the changes I made to the Home page. In the right column, I provide links to various pieces of content which change most days (except Indigenous Voices):
- David’s Blog (on website)
- Today’s Film (on website)
- Top Content (on website)
- Guest Blog (on website)
- Recent News (from popular media)
- Recovery Stories: ‘sister’ website
- Indigenous Voices.
Finally, I’d like to let you know that my blog United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples had over 850 Likes, which is excellent. The link had over 5,000 views on Facebook.
My blog Amnesty International Report (2011): Aboriginal Peoples’ right to homelands had over 350 Likes and over 7,000 Facebook views. There clearly is a lot of interest in these topics.
