Cultural Competence - Aboriginal Sydney MOOC Trailer

Cultural Competence - Aboriginal Sydney

Explore some of the key themes and capabilities of cultural competence by exploring Aboriginal experiences and narratives of Sydney. At the heart of this MOOC is the theme that Sovereignty was never ceded and Sydney always was and always will be Aboriginal Land. Despite this, the Aboriginal presence in the city is often invisible to non-Aboriginal eyes. This course aims to bring to light marginalised narratives of Aboriginal presence in this space.
