Moments of Connection

The project aims to explore how young people form connections within their community, how they change overtime and how they can influence wellbeing and sustained participation in education.

A key objective of the project is to engage participants in the iterative development of a toolkit for ongoing reflection and action which can be used by practitioners in university, school and community settings to support the development of self-awareness, perspective-taking and connection-making.

This project received Seed Funding from the Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education and will be led by Equity Ambassador Dr Tamara Blakemore and a team of collaborators.

The University of Newcastle acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands within our footprint areas: Awabakal, Darkinjung, Biripai, Worimi, Wonnarua, and Eora Nations. We also pay respect to the wisdom of our Elders past and present.
