First Nations Bedtime StoriesOct 20, 2022
Common Ground’s annual week of storytelling brings Dream stories into homes and classrooms around Australia.
DREAMING STORIES ARE SACRED, AND HAVE PLAYED A CENTRAL ROLE IN FIRST NATIONS CULTURES SINCE TIME IMMEMORIAL. THEY ARE THE FOUNDATION OF FIRST NATIONS WAYS OF THINKING, BEING AND KNOWING. THEY CARRY KNOWLEDGE AND LAW, AND TEACH US HOW TO CARE FOR COUNTRY.
Every year Common Ground works with different First Nations creatives and communities to film five Dreaming stories. The films are shared online, and people come together to watch them over five days.
First Nations Bedtime Stories is for everyone – young and older, families and schools, or even workplaces. It’s a time for all people to come together on a journey towards deeper connection and understanding. To learn from and celebrate First Nations cultures and the profound wisdom they hold.
We encourage families and classrooms to sign up to receive the Dream stories to your inbox, watch stories from 21-25 November, learn, reflect and connect and donate to Common Ground if you can and receive your educational resources and preview today.
Common Ground works with teachers to develop comprehensive educational resources to accompany the films. These resources can help people of all ages understand the stories and their meaning, and deepen their relationship with First Nations cultures, knowledge and perspectives.
