Vicsport is thrilled to be partnering with VACSAL to bring the Victorian sports industry this important educational opportunity designed to increase sports administrators knowledge and confidence in providing culturally safe and respectful opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.

  • Media portrayals
  • Fear and its effect on Cultural interaction
  • Identify urban & rural lifestyles of Community
  • White Australia has a Black history
  • Demographic data both urban and rural
