As a community organisation that serve the public good, the health and safety of our staff and visitors are our top priorities. With that in mind, during these challenging times of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, we are temporarily suspending all our public programs including workshops, public walking tours, venue hire and training programs until further notice. We will continue to monitor this arrangement based on the latest advice, and will provide updates on our landing page and social media. We apologise for any inconvenience and look forward to welcoming you back to the KHT in the near future.

We are leaders in Building Aboriginal Cultural Competency (BACC) through our Indigenous Cultural Awareness workshops. Our facilitators are experts in the field, and we can work with you to tailor a program to suit your particular requirements.

Our Building Aboriginal Cultural Competency Workshop enables participants to gain the most out of the program through group activities.

We have a minimum group size requirement of 10 participants. We also cap the group size at 25 to provide all participants the opportunity to engage with the facilitator.

Our workshops are based around experiential/participatory learning that encourage reflection on participants’ own values, beliefs and behaviour.  Our workshops also provide flexibility to incorporate specific needs of organisations working in particular fields with Aboriginal communities including education, health, justice and land & resources.

The learning outcomes of our workshops are to:

  • Develop awareness of Aboriginal culture and identity
  • Develop awareness of the strengths of Aboriginal culture and people
  • Assist in making the connection and understanding the impact of colonisation and past policy for Aboriginal people today
  • Develop capacity to be more understanding and responsive to Aboriginal colleagues and clients
  • Motivate participants in their cultural competence journey
