Going back into lockdown is hard and not just a little bit scary. It’s never been so important to connect and share our experiences. While we can’t get together in person the STA zOOm circle is a place to come together online while we are all separated by the pandemic. Together we will help each other through this uncertain time.
The STA zOOm Circle is an online informal gathering based on the Yarning circle.
Yarning circles are a traditional part of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture used to learn from a collective group, build respectful relationships and to preserve and pass on cultural knowledge.
Circles provide a safe place for all to speak without judgement. A collaborative way to be heard and to respond. They are used as a meeting place for both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Aboriginal communities to come together.
The STA zOOm circle is for all creatives and cultural workers living across the Southern Highlands and Tablelands of NSW, STA members and non-members.
If you’d like to become an STA Member you can sign up here (it’s free and only takes a few moment to join us.
Meeting ID: 825 2937 1279
Here’s how it works:
- zOOm in Tuesdays at 12.30pm.
- Will go for up to 60mins depending on the number of people.
- Everyone gets an equal time to speak.
- When someone is talking no one interrupts or comments.
- Only talk if you wish to.
- Everyone’s experience is valid and important.
