Exploration: A deeper dive into ‘Welcome’

A Bit of Fun: As you walk up to the library we invite you to find Trim, Matthew Flinders’ cat.

The Thinking Differently Together Network will be gathering at the State Library of New South Wales. The State Library acknowledges the Gadigal people of the Eora nation, the traditional custodians of the land and waters on which the library stands.

The evening’s reflection begins in the foyer of the old section of the library. As you encounter the space, we would like to pose the following questions, “Do you feel welcome in this space, why, why not?” and “What about this space invites or excludes?  and “What would you do with this space with children?”

  • * Acknowledgement of Country
  • * Welcome and reflections on how you felt when you entered the library through the foyer space.
  • * Provocation – sharing thinking on who is the audience for your welcome in your service?
  • * Summary/Conclusion
  • * REAIE News
  • * Dates for next meetings:     Tuesday 3rd September Venue TBC
    Thursday 28th November Venue TBC
  • * Wander through the library
  • * Final provocation: “Thinking back to your feelings on entering the building, as you exit though a different space, we invite you to pause and reflect on which space made you feel more welcome?”
  • * Invitation to continue the conversation in the Library Bar
