Purruna Miyurna 2-day health summit for ATSI students

SHINE SA, 25.5.2017

PURRUNA MIYURNA: Healthy People

Presented by SHINE SA’s Yarning On program, Purruna Miyurna is a 2-day health
summit for ATSI students in years 9–12 in high schools and education programs
within southern Adelaide.

This interactive and hands-on summit will cover:
• Respectful relationships
• Domestic violence
• Sexual health
• Self-worth and cultural identity

The objective of the summit is to provide an opportunity for our students to gain
information and understanding on the topic of “Healthy Relationships”, what a
healthy relationship looks like, feels like and sounds like.
The summit will be culturally safe and LGBTIQ inclusive.

Our aim is to start a conversation among our young people, educate and
share information in order to break down barriers and challenge the perceived
stereotypes/ideas of Aboriginal people in relationships.

The summit will include ActNow Theatre presenting “Speak out”. This is an interactive theatre performance tackling homophobia in high schools. Presented by young professional actors and a facilitator, “Speak Out” explores various forms of homophobia and the effect it has, while providing opportunities and a safe space to develop strategies to respond to homophobia.

Local Kaurna Narrunga man Jack Buckskin will also be presenting during the summit, facilitating a cultural identity workshop, strengthening the cultural knowledge of our Aboriginal young people and their understanding of cultural identity and self-respect.

COST: $50 per student, includes a summit shirt, catering and an information bag
