INTERWEAVING: COEXISTENCE AND RESILIENCE IN AUSTRALIA
Latin Stories Australia in conjunction with Casa Cultura and Momentum Psychology are delivering a series of FREE workshops for Latin American women focused on social and professional participation in Australian life, women empowerment, cultural diversity, isolation and sense of belonging. These workshops will take place between 20 of July and 26 of October 2019 in nine different areas across Victoria.
TIME: 10:00 AM to 2:30 PM (FREE lunch included)
ABOUT THE SESSION:
Each workshop is made up of three sections that complement each other :
1- Conversations with inspiring Latin American women. You will have the opportunity to hear directly from one of them on their insights for developing skills and cultural competencies to integrate into Australian life. Latin Stories Australia will facilitate an informal dialogic reflection on Australian values, equality at work and how to participate in Australia’s social and professional life.
2- A fun hands-on workshop to explore cultural, racial and religious diversity. CASA CULTURA will assist participants to explore the concepts of identity, diversity and sense of belonging of Latin American women in Australia using elements of a Chilean textile technique called Arpillera.
3- An experiential session to talk about isolation, sense of belonging and resilience. We will also explore practical skills to build resilience in times of crisis. Session run by Momentum Psychology.
