Back to all news
Building shared places where lasting, meaningful, respectful and engaging relationships grow is a mechanism for making sense of the world around us as individuals, teachers, partners, parents, and community members. Evoking a passion for engaging in the unknown, defining collective values and embedding the Aboriginal way of connectedness, thinking and understanding requires a shift and a redefining of values. Reconciled spaces are not made, they are nurtured and tended. The journey to reconciliation is one that we can all share. Sharing the journey will allow the path to reconciliation to remain open.
Charles Davison is a Gadigal man with direct kin connection to the Anawan and Gamilaroi people of the New England area of NSW. Charles is the current NSW Health State Manager for Aboriginal Workforce and Development, was the State President of the NSW Aboriginal Education Consultative Group for seven years prior and is a strong advocate for social justice, self-determination and Reconciliation. Charles is passionate about holistic educational experiences for all children and strives to ensure that cultural identity and heritage are no longer viewed as barriers to equity and equality.
Jenni Ridley is a Wiradjuri woman with strong connections to the Bathurst and Cowra communities of NSW. Jenni is the current Manager and Creative Director of the long established and respected Aboriginal literacy charity known as "Indij Readers". She is passionate about social justice for Aboriginal people, especially in relation to defending and advocating the rights of Aboriginal Australia in the notion of "we are not the problem".
