Journey to Wunyami / Green Island

Green Island, or Wunyami, is part of the traditional lands of the Gungandji and Yidinji people. Wunyami is a 6000-year-old rainforest covered coral cay located within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, about 45 minutes by boat from Cairns/Gimuy.   

This half-day workshop will take attendees through practical skills to improve presentation abilities by utilising performance pedagogies. The workshop will be facilitated by a culturally informed trainer, with content tailored to First Nations attendees.

Attendees will have the opportunity to put their new skills to the test and receive constructive feedback from their peers.
