BlackCard delivering Cultural Education & Training across Australia
The BlackCard Course is delivered by highly respected elders who have spent decades educating people on topics such as Aboriginal Terms of Reference, Aboriginal Perspectives and Aboriginal Politics/Worldview. Our workshops are held monthly and open to the public.
Below is a recent accolade for Lilla Watson, co-founder and facilitator of BlackCard.
Congratulations on receiving a 2014 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Higher Education Advisory Council Award for Elders and Leaders in Higher Education.
Your appointment as a lecturer at UQ was a watershed moment in the University’s history, recognising the value of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander terms of reference and expertise in tertiary level teaching. The UQ of today continues to learn from your teachings, including your work in developing interdisciplinary subjects of Aboriginal Perspectives and Aboriginal Approaches to Knowledge.
For a decade, staff and students at UQ were strengthened by your counsel and mentorship, exemplifying pride in identity and in Aboriginal culture.
