National Reconciliation Week Activities
National Reconciliation Week starts next month, running from 27 May – 3 June. To mark the week, and celebrate the 2020 National Reconciliation Week theme, In This Together, the In My Blood It Runs team has a number of special events for you to join in on.
Have your workplace mark National Reconciliation Week with us by having a team screening of In My Blood It Runs then joining a live Q&A with the filmmakers and partners.
In celebration of National Reconciliation Week, the In My Blood It Runs team is hosting a Tuesday afternoon Q&A with members of the filmmaking team, for workplaces to run as an educational and cultural learning event for their staff. Each ticket includes access to the film and a live Q&A for your staff to join.
The Q&A will be centred around the filmmaking, impact campaign, and how workplaces and organisations can work to improve cultural safety.
A key goal of the In My Blood It Runs campaign is to make Australian schools more culturally safe for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students.
Free Professional Learning and Classroom Resources
Don’t miss our new professional learning resource for teachers written by Reconciliation Australia’s Narragunnawali team and classroom resources by ATOM for students, developed with our Advisory Board who read, discussed and redrafted these guides over many months.
Professional Learning For Educators Q&A
Join a live and interactive professional learning webinar to support teaching in the classroom on April 28th at 2pm with Dr Chris Sarra, Alanna Raymond and Maya Newell facilitated by Stephanie Woderde.
Free Education Screenings
The film is available for free to all schools in Australia’ and New Zealand from 30 April – 3 June, and we’re particularly encouraging teachers to engage with it during National Reconciliation Week.
Virtual School Excursions
Take your class on a ‘Virtual Excursion’ to watch the film and participate in a live online Q&A with the filmmakers and targeted moderators for each subject area. The education resources are pitched at Yrs 9 – 12 students, but the conversations are appropriate for high school students more generally.
Public Virtual Cinema
After the success of our previous Virtual Cinema screenings, which raised $6,000 for Aboriginal communities to face COVID-19, we are offering two additional Q&A sessions for the public during National Reconciliation Week. There are two sessions available:
Wed 3 June, 6.30pm AEST
Thur 4 June, 6.30pm AEST
While we are focusing on the lead up to National Reconciliation Week, it’s important that educators take steps towards driving reconciliation in education every week of the year.
We want to send a HUGE thank our education partners: Reconciliation Australia and its Narragunnawali: Reconciliation in Education team, Stronger Smarter Institute, World Vision, Young Mob, National Indigenous Youth Education Coalition (NIYEC), Human Rights Commission, Children’s Ground, ATOM, COOL Australia, High Resolves and Be One for helping to make this happen.
We hope to see you at these events,
The In My Blood It Runs Team
