A professional learning partnership event between the Islamic Museum of Australia and VATE.
Equipping students with the intercultural knowledge, appreciation, skills and understandings is essential for their futures in an increasingly interconnected world. Developing students’ capacity to become responsible local and global citizens, prepared to engage respectfully in multicultural interactions is an integral component of their participation in a culturally diverse yet cohesive community. أبدع (pronounced 'abde') translates to 'get creative' – what we hope the day will inspire you all to do with your students.
Join comedian and author, Nazeem Hussain, Huda Hayek, author of the CBCA shortlisted Huda and Me, Özge Sevindik Alkan, co-founder of The Right Pen Collective, the National Education Manager of the Islamic Museum of Australia, Kym Wilton, and Emma Jenkins, VATE’s Education Officer as they share the museum’s space, take inspiration from the artefacts and explore ways to enable students to appreciate their own cultures, languages and beliefs as well as appreciate the commonalities and connections to the diverse cultures that make up their society through the process of creative reading and writing.
All delegates will receive a copy of Nazeem Hussain's book, Hy-Larious Hyena!, as part of their registration.
