Useful Resources

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Culture

Share our Pride (website): Indigenous employment and engagement is a specialised area of diversity. DCA recommends that organisations begin the process by familiarising themselves with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. The following resource put together by Reconciliation Australia provides valuable insight into how life looks from an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspective.1

The Victorian Government, Deadly Questions- an interactive website featuring questions and answers from Aboriginal Victorians to explore Aboriginal cultures, histories, ideas, opinions and Treaty in Victoria.2

Common Ground – this website is designed to build a foundational level of knowledge for all Australians and be a go-to resource for those wanting to learn more and connect with First Peoples.3

Japingka Aboriginal Art, An Introductory Guide to Understanding Aboriginal Art – a useful resource for those wishing to engage with an Indigenous artist as part of their Reconciliation Action Plan design.4

Australian Council for the Arts, Protocols for Working with Indigenous Artists Guidelines – a useful resource for those wishing to engage with an Indigenous artist as part of their Reconciliation Action Plan design.5

DCA, Creating Inclusive Multi-Faith Workplaces Guidelines – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Spiritualities.

DCA, Planning for Special D&I Days – a list of key dates for national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander days of significance and resources.
