Welcome to your Friday newsletter, I hope it provokes thinking and provides tools or strategies to navigate some new ideas.
Take the time to explore these resources and artefacts. Use them all as provocations for starting a dialogue.

I Acknowledge My Bias
You have to acknowledge there is a problem, so that you can take more ownership for the problem ~Emmanuel Acho
This powerful set of provocations from Emmanuel Acho helped me to see my bias. His insight helped me to see the unseen. To cast light on what remained in shadow.
His creative work has helped me to recognise the implicit bias and the way my life has been impacted by that privilege.
I am starting by acknowledging my bias.
Emmanuel Acho sits down to have an “uncomfortable conversation” with white America, in order to educate and inform on racism, system racism, social injustice, rioting & the hurt African Americans are feeling today.
Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man
Healing Justice
Black Lives Matter began as a call to action in response to state-sanctioned violence and anti-Black racism. Our intention from the very beginning was to connect Black people from all over the world who have a shared desire for justice to act together in their communities. The impetus for that commitment was, and still is, the rampant and deliberate violence inflicted on us by the state.

Yulendj: 'knowledge and intelligence'
The First Peoples exhibition at the Melbourne Museum is a place that really challenged and provoked my thinking. I realised how much I did not know about the land we had chosen to move our lives to.
The exhibit was designed and created in collaboration with a diverse range of stakeholders.
Yulendj is a Kulin word for ‘knowledge and intelligence’. It is the name that members of the Bunjilaka Community Reference Group chose to describe their role in the First Peoples exhibition.
Yulendj comprises a group of 16 respected community members and Elders from across Victoria. They have generously shared their knowledge and experience to shape this exhibition into one that represents the diversity, history and pride of Koorie peoples.
The best way to describe it is one of those patchwork quilts. Everybody’s got a different story and them patches all join together. ~Esther Kirby
I encourage you to read their stories and learn about their history. You can also explore a virtual tour of the exhibit here.

Recognise the shape of the lens, hold up a mirror, explore your blind spots.
Let me know what resonates.
In dialogue we trust.
