Dunghutti

Murawin’s Country-centric methodology

that ensures Country, community and Indigenous knowledge informs all the projects we work on and guides us through intercultual collaboration and co-design.

In an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander view, Country is everything.

It is not only the place itself but everything that makes up that place: the land, water, skies, animals and the people. More importantly are the relationships, the energy, and the space in between the individual parts. Nothing exists in isolation; it is a part of a complex system, with all elements in constant interconnection and interrelatedness, where context is everything.

Upcoming Training Workshops

You’re invited to an exclusive workshop designed to elevate your project implementation and build your capacity in accessing the upcoming infrastructure and development opportunities in Armidale.

Led by our CEO Carol Vale, Murawin will be running two stand-alone sessions at the Nova Hub in Armidale NSW on July 24 and September 25. The workshops will be a unique opportunity to learn about:

  • Murawin’s deep connection to the region
  • Our signature Country-centric methodology, Barri Marruma
  • Economic and value driven procurement – culturally safe and commercially sound
  • Business opportunities available in the region

Barri Marruma provides a four-phase framework

that provides an anchoring to Country and ensures that our services are rooted in context, deep listening, participatory engagement, exploratory co-design and ambitious vision.

TRUTH

Deep listening enables unearthing and uncovers the project truths, the roots.
The deeper the roots, the deeper and longer lasting the impact

KNOWLEDGE

Sharing of principles, values, and knowledge grounded in context, community, and culture. Water is cyclical, always moving and changing form. Both informed by the landscape it moves through and simultaneously changing it.
