INVITATION: Limited places left for a YARN with ICEA
This year we’ve decided we want to create more opportunities for our donors.
So along with giving our Impact100 Fremantle donors the opportunity to come along for every step of the granting process, this year we’re offering a number of events related to our 2017 focus of Aboriginal health and well being.
We’ve teamed up with our friends at ICEA (Indigenous Communities Education & Awareness) to offer you the opportunity to participate in Yarn, a program that facilitates an understanding of cultural identity, shared history and reconciliation.
A vital step in moving towards reconciliation is to ensure all Australians know about Australia’s shared history, Australia’s First Peoples and the world’s oldest surviving culture.
Join us and let’s have a YARN
Please join us over two consecutive Mondays to have a Yarn with fellow Impact100 Fremantle donors.
WHEN: 6.00-8.00PM, Monday 24th July and Monday 31st July, 2017
WHERE: Old Boys School Fremantle, 92 Adelaide Street Fremantle WA 6160
Light refreshments provided.
There are limited places left so hurry up and RSVP to ensure your place.
Wait, but what is Yarn?
Yarn is exactly that – a yarn! A safe space to have courageous conversations about race, racism and reconciliation. Through open discussion and interactive learning, Yarn works to eliminate ignorance and challenge some of the inherited attitudes and biases that prevent reconciliation from moving forward.
Yarn makes our communities more inclusive by building respect for Aboriginal cultures and peoples and fostering young leaders who are culturally responsive.
We hope you’ll join us for a Yarn, and we look forward to seeing you soon.
