Mirri Mirri is a First Nations owned company. The word Mirri Mirri originates from the Kamilaroi language and translates as 'star'.

Mirri Mirri is delivering a condensed version of their training session as a part of the department's commitment to accelerate the development of a culturally agile workforce.

The workshops are designed to increase organisational engagement, understanding and connection with Aboriginal Australia. This includes increasing participant knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, exploring effective communication and engagement techniques, and focusing on creating a culturally safe work environment.

Mirri Mirri aim to educate in a manner that inspires change at both an individual and organisational level.


Their key focus areas for the workshop include:

  • History
  • Culture Identity
  • Capacity Building
  • Engagement
  • Their approach

Mirri Mirri’s approach is to create a mutually respectful environment whereby participants are able to learn about Aboriginal Australia. Our workshops are influenced by quality teaching methodologies and developed by tertiary qualified educators. To maximise participant involvement, workshops are resource based and require active participation using a hands-on approach that is both informative, fun and outcomes driven.
