Workshops for Rainforest Aboriginal people

Wet Tropics Traditional Owners have been enthusiastically participating in a series of capacity building workshops facilitated by the Wet Tropics Management Authority.

The workshops have focussed on key interest areas such as cultural heritage mapping techniques, participatory decision making and ways to share good news stories using social media and photography. Participants have travelled from all over the region to attend.

"I’ve been to a couple of the WTMA workshops now and it’s great to learn new things that I can apply in my work and with my own mob" says Girramay Traditional Owner Seraeah Wyles.

In late June the Authority also offered Wet Tropics Traditional Owners an opportunity to gain skills in the design and delivery of cultural awareness training. Facilitated by Kooma Traditional Owner Les Skelton, this training helped participants to build a framework for delivering their own cultural awareness training to partners or other organisations on a fee-for-service basis.

Further, the Authority will deliver another workshop on 12 July with a focus on project planning and implementation. Check our facebook page for details.
