Menzies seminar series 


Bilawara Lee presents ‘Cultural protocols for working in Indigenous communities’, on Monday 16 June from 12pm to 1pm.

Bilawara’s seminar will present a practical grass-roots approach to working with Aboriginal communities, including cultural and practical considerations and a comparison between non-Indigenous and Indigenous decision making processes.

Aboriginal people have legitimate concerns over the impact on their families, communities and culture by non-Aboriginal people and therefore Elders and community members protect the interests of their families and culture.

Cultural protocols for working in Indigenous communities have been developed to improve community engagement between Indigenous people and anyone who travels to communities to do projects.

Bilawara Lee is a senior woman from the Larrakia Nation of Darwin. She is the manager, Indigenous Development Unit, and a conflict resolution mediator and cross cultural awareness trainer.

She was previously manager of the Indigenous Arts Development Unit for the NT Government with many years experience in travelling and working with communities across the Territory in the areas of arts and culture.

This seminar takes place in the Menzies Seminar Room, John Mathews Building, Royal Darwin Hospital Campus.
