The Songlines Engaging Pathways™ draws deeply from Aboriginal cultural heritage and wisdom. Songlines represent traditional trading routes across the nation where information and resources is shared.
The model teaches individuals and organisations how to make deep and meaningful connections with Aboriginal peoples and their communities. In the Kimberley region of Western Australia for example, this vast sharing network is called Wunan also depicted in our business logo.
This course is highly interactive and applied. Participants work in small teams to develop an engagement action plan, during the program, applying their learnings. The program is supported by an action plan template and workbook – based on Evolve’s Songline Engaging Pathways™ model. Participants nominate a relevant work case study to use through the program. Each session introduces the action plan section, then participants work in small teams to develop their action plan – reading through and applying the workbook materials. This culminates in each team presenting their action plan to the group.
“As Evolve Communities have taught iAccelerate, Aboriginal Songlines are essentially knowledge networks that enable the communication of ideas to flow back and forth between two or more locations and serves as the perfect model for innovation ecosystems”
