Aunty Nicole Williams is a determined educator and Imagineer with over 30 years experience. Her family, cultural and social history has ensured a relentless commitment to creating a more informed community that embraces Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ significant, ongoing historical and cultural connections to place and space.
In this webinar Aunty Nicole Williams will discuss strategies for collaborating with First Nations creatives, organisations and businesses. This discussion-based webinar will empower you to build meaningful and long lasting connections with your local Traditional Custodians, to embrace First Nations peoples’ sophisticated knowledge systems, understandings and practices, which have been the nucleus of humanity since time infinitum.
About your facilitator: Hi! My name is Nicole Williams. I am a First Nations woman with cultural and ancestral connections to KukuDjungan country in FNQ, Daly River in NT, Ugar in the Torres Strait and Burketown/Doomadgee. I have been a passionate advocate for others as it relates to our collective humanity. I use the Arts – print making, poetry – spoken word, visual arts, fine arts – calligraphy to convey and tell my many stories. I am excited about the opportunities that arise where we are willing and wanting to have conversations that explore and celebrate similarities and our differences with regard to our own perspectives on history and humanity. The Arts are a wonderful space to have these yarns as we all know the arts’ ability for therapeutic relief. I am a secondary school teacher and have found the arts to be extremely helpful in my classroom teaching. I have a back ground in family history research which helps bring understanding to my classroom teaching practise. I love learning and sharing. My entire lifetime has been one in community helping in one way or other whether running screen-printing workshops, cultural conversations or political speeches. I look forward to working with you to help develop further connections and insights.
