GLAPD women invited to special women’s camp with Aboriginal Elders in Taree Nov 6-8

Lucy Hobgood-Brown has received an invitation for all GLAPD women and their women friends to attend a free women’s camp on Aboriginal land at the Saltwater national park on the outskirts of Taree. Taree is approx. 3.5 hrs drive north of Sydney, it is a very beautiful beach area, on the ocean. For details see the National Park website. The Women’s Camp will be held Wednesday, Nov 6 to Friday, Nov 8.

Aboriginal elder Aunty Barbara Clark and other Aboriginal Elders are very excited about having African women participate for the first time in this sacred space.

All costs (including meals) are paid by the Parks Service. An invitation/registration form will be available soon. To attend all, or part of the camp, women must register. The organisers hope that 100-150 women will attend. No men or boys (over 2) may participate. Accomodation will be in tents; you can bring your own, or a tent can be arranged for you by the National Park staff. Our activities will be held under canvas shelters. There are toilets.

What’s the program?
Day 1:  registration, setting up camp, crafts workshops
Day 2:  women’s health / legal aid topics
Day 3:  will feature bush tucker (Indigenous food) and possibly African food demonstrations.
Evenings will feature campfires, story-telling, dancing, etc.
