UNSW Indigenous Society Update UNSW Indigenous Society Recommendations Making College More Culturally Aware The UNSW Indigenous Society was approached by the Basser College President, seeking advice as how to make the college more culturally appropriate and aware of Indigenous culture. After holding an online forum, the Indigenous Collective came up with several recommendations and are planning on approaching other colleges on UNSW Campus to integrate these recommendations into their colleges. For a copy of the recommendations please see UNSW Indigenous Students page or email Bridget.

Do you like to write? Entries for Indigenous section in UNSWeetened NOW OPEN! UNSWeetened is UNSW’s annual literary journal, lovingly put together by student volunteers and launched during Arts Week in Semester two. Each year, the journal publishes a diverse range of poetry and short stories which are written by both undergraduate and postgraduate students. This year, the journal is looking to represent a broader and more diverse group of UNSW creatives through showcasing the best creative writing talent on campus in a variety of fields and redefining our categories to ‘Open Prose,’ ‘Open Poetry’ and ‘Indigenous Section’. We are looking for every kind of submission – from the personal to the provocative, weird to wonderful, strange to structured. This year we are working in conjunction with UNSW’s Indigenous Collective to create an Indigenous Fiction section. This section is aimed at promoting and recognising Indigenous writers within our community. Indigenous writers are encouraged to submit to this category but are also free to submit their works in the Open Fiction section. Past journals are available at: http://www.arc.unsw.edu.au/read/unsweetened-literary-journal. You can also access the submission form there. Entries are due by June 14. For extensions and questions please don’t hesitate to contact: Carla Zuniga via email at unsweetened@arc.unsw.edu. au Indigenous Collective Meetings When: Tuesday, 5pm Where: Nura Gili If you would like to get involved or have any questions regarding the Indigenous collective and society, please contact Bridget Cama on b.cama@arc.unsw.edu.au. 4 5
