Teaching First Nations Content and Concepts
6:00pm – 7:30pm (Melbourne time zone)
Online live stream


Between 2016 to 2020, Monash University collaborated with the ILBIJERRI Theatre Company and Drama Victoria in developing a resource to empower teachers to engage with First Nations content and concepts like reconciliation. After four years in development, Teaching First Nations Content & Concepts in the Drama Classroom was launched in February 2020, with the official endorsement of VAEAI (Victorian Aboriginal Education Association Incorporated).

Although developed for drama teachers, the resource has been widely acclaimed across education and performing arts sectors for its candour and depth, and for its aspirational invitation to transform the relationship of non-Indigenous Australia with its First Nations and Peoples.

In celebration of NAIDOC Week you will have the opportunity to join our panel discussion where you will hear from the co-authors along with education and performing arts industry leaders about the development of this resource and its unique approach to supporting reconciliation education in school and community settings.
