Develop and maintain relationships with Indigenous Australian performance mentors
This unit describes the skills and knowledge required to connect with Indigenous Australian traditions and to establish and maintain effective professional relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander performance mentors.
The knowledge required to achieve competency in this unit may only be accessible to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and may be the cultural and intellectual property of specific communities. Respect and maintenance of community protocols would need to be adhered to. Organisations delivering this unit would be expected to work closely with the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community or Community Advisory Board (CAB). Information on the composition and role of CABs is provided in the Assessment Guidelines in CUA11 Live Performance Training Package.
The unit has been developed and written in the context of Indigenous Australians maintaining control of their cultural heritage and directing if and how this heritage may be passed on and assessed. It is intended to be delivered by and to Indigenous Australian.
