Empathy: Wendy models how to share 20 of her songs in the learning environment…by ‘doing’. Educators have the chance to ‘hold’ the songs in their heart and body memory (like children do) and feel greater empathy with the cultural messages embedded in the lyrics:

Sharing the Songs: Indigenous / 1,2,3,4,5 / Red, Black & Yellow / Wiradjuri and Bundjalung / Many Mobs / We’re Koori Kids / There Was A Man / Stand Up / Kids on Our Block / Growin’ Up Strong / The Wheels On The Holden / Melaleuca / Special Land / Kangaroo Rock / Kami’s Country / Noongar In The Bush / Tucker / Until the Fire Is Out / Round The Campfire Tonight / The Hairy One / Happy To Be Me / Ridge-i-Didge ...

Unpacking the Songs: Working collaboratively in small groups, educators will unpack the cultural messages embedded in a selection of songs and explore the provocations that arise. The groups will re join and share ideas, inspiring educators with practical ways to integrate and extend the songs in the learning environment, embedding cultural perspectives in an everyday way.
