The “Working with Contentious Cultural Issues” workshops, funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA), will take participants on a journey through the history of flags and their meanings, into how culture and traditions are different, and the different meaning of the terms. We will also look at cultural expressions, understanding what culture is, where it comes from, and how it defines us all. We will also look at prejudice and stereotyping, and how these can lead into discrimination of someone because of the cultural beliefs.
