Cultural Learning Journey's
Bindi Bindi Dreaming recognises cultural difference and aims to deliver cross-cultural interaction. The journey's help participants become self-aware, increase, expose and connects with different people culturally.
The journey's are for anyone looking to improve their capacity to operate in a cross-cultural context. They are designed to deliver cultural information to assist participants to gain a better understanding of Noongar people and our culture and ways.
