Footprint 2 - Aunty Barb History Journey - Reclaiming our stories, reclaiming our lives
This is the second 'footprint' on the Aunty Barb Walking History Journey.
Created by Aunty Barbara Wingard and Dulwich Centre Foundation this journey honours significant histories in the south-east corner of Adelaide. The stories are spoken by Sharon Perkins and Trent Wingard.
Here are some questions you might consider after listening to the stories from this second footprint:
1. Aunty Barbara says, ‘As long as we work in partnership together and share that together, I think these gatherings can work really, really well’. What sort of partnerships are significant for you to do your work well? How are you trying to foster and sustain these partnerships?
2. If the people you meet with were to join with you in holding a narrative community gathering, who would you wish to bring together? What themes might you speak about? Why? What would be first steps?
3. This footprint tells the story of how, in order to create culturally appropriate counselling, a different form of collective gathering had to be developed. What sort of adaptations are you making to generate culturally, socially, spiritually appropriate narrative practice?
4. Here in Australia, the police, courts, and prisons are more of an injustice system than a justice system’ – what implications does this have for our work? Does this mean we have to question how our services may be entangled with an ‘injustice system’?
