Hey all you mob!
Have you heard about the WA Aboriginal Sexual Health Forum?
If you have been to one then you know what it is all about. If you haven’t been to one then have a read of this!
‘Yarning our way’ is the theme for the Forum. We want to come together to share, to inspire each other and yarn about ways that build a strong future for the younger generation in sexual health and respectful relationships.
The forum will provide participants an opportunity to:
• Hear what’s happening in other communities
• Learn about current issues
• Hear inspiring personal stories
• Come together to share ideas and plan what you want to do in your community.
We want to hear stories about what’s happening in Aboriginal communities – whether it is a project, activity or program, big or small. We would really love to hear from Aboriginal people.
Would you like to come and share your story? Or is there someone that you would suggest? Here are some ways that you can share your story:
Presentation: Talk to large group, with or without a PowerPoint presentation.
Workshop: Discussion or activity for a small or large group.
Yarning circle: Can be outside by the Bilya (river) or inside with a maximum of 20 people.
Forum presenters receive free registration to this event. If you are thinking of sharing your story, then give us a call and have a yarn with us.
We do have some travel and accommodation subsidies available for people from rural/remote communities or for people on low income, please contact us for details. All information about the Forum will be updated on the WA Sexual Health Network website at washn.org.au
Comments from the last Forum;
“It was lovely to see Aboriginal people presenting, some for the first time. To hear the work that they are doing on the ground, their challenges and their successes was great. People on our table were talking about taking these ideas back home”. – Participant from the 2015 Forum.
“One of the best two days..great to meet other workers from all over WA….. practical hands on learning..lots of fun”
