Cultural Immersion & Decolonisation Workshops
Push Back Programs
Push Back Workshops
Cultural Immersions and Decolonisation workshops are truth telling shared through stories of local community. They invite you to see local history through an Aboriginal lens, on an intimate journey through true Australian history.
Our Workshops work to educate non-indigenous Australians on the systematic racism and colonial structures that affect the everyday lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, while addressing white privilege and fragility, and how non-indigenous Australians can develop the skills and insight to become culturally aware.
Immersions take place over a two day period; The first day “In Our Footsteps”, and the second day “Through Our Eyes”. Decolonisation Workshops have a one day option is a group is unable to attend two sessions.

Push Back FAQ’s
How Long Does A Workshop Go For?
Cultural Immersion you have the option of 1 day or 2 day, the extra day is being on country to connect and learn.
Decolonisation workshops are 1 day, but there can be discussions around this if needed.
Where Can The Workshops Be Delivered?
2 day Cultural Immersions are only held on country, in the Shoalhaven region of NSW, while 1 day Cultural Immersion and Decolonisation workshops can be held anywhere.
Are The Workshops Only For Non-Aboriginal People?
Predominantly they are focused around educating non-Aboriginal people but it doesn’t mean that Aboriginal people can’t participate, it can actually benefit a group when you have Aboriginal participants to share their experiences alongside the facilitators especially if the group are work colleagues. Also we never dismiss Aboriginal people who may want to learn more about themselves if they don’t have a strong connection to their identity
What Is The Minimum Number Of Participants?
We require 15 participants but if you have a smaller group we can combine you with another small group to make the minimum or include from our list of individual interested participants to make numbers.
