ERC Indigenous Programs - Let's Talk Immersion Programs
ERC's "Let's Talk" cross-cultural immersion programs within Aboriginal communities in rural NSW are based on a philosophy of experiential learning and critical social analysis.
Through grass roots experience groups build relationships and are energised to take an active, creative role in shaping a peaceful and cohesive society now and in the future.
Let's Talk Local makes connections across the urban-rural divide between Indigenous and non-Indigenous youth and adults in Australia. Let's Talk Local runs a program where students from the Sydney area are hosted by Aboriginal communities in far north-west NSW.
In January, ERC Let's Talk Program Coordinator Cassandra Gibbs spoke to ABC's Religion and Ethics Report about the Let's Talk program, its origins and impacts.
