At Mitcham Social, we are dedicated to cultivating a deep sense of cultural awareness within our community. We recognize the importance of understanding and respecting the diverse cultural heritage that enriches our society, with a special focus on the Indigenous communities, such as the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation.
We acknowledge the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people as the Traditional Custodians of the lands on which we live, work, and create. This acknowledgment is a fundamental step in our commitment to cultural awareness, respect, and reconciliation.
Cultivating cultural awareness begins with honoring the Elders, both past and present, who have dedicated their lives to preserving their cultural heritage and sharing their knowledge. Their leadership and wisdom are invaluable in our collective journey of understanding and unity.
Our organization is dedicated to learning from wood fired the knowledge, sustainable practices, and cultural traditions of Indigenous communities, incorporating these values into our community’s ethos. We aim to celebrate and amplify the voices and contributions of Indigenous peoples, recognizing their pivotal role in shaping the cultural mosaic of our society.
As we move forward, we aspire to foster cultural awareness as a core value, promoting respect and understanding among all members of our community. Cultivating cultural awareness is a symbol of our dedication to building a more inclusive, harmonious, and culturally rich future for all Australians.
