CURRENT LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT 
Cybersafety Basics Workshops

These highly popular sessions support parents and

families to support young users.

 

It is recommended you have an agreement in place BEFORE

a child uses any device outside of schools protected internet

environment. And if you own the device doesn't it make

sense that you make the rules, especially if legally,

everything searched and downloaded is yours?

 

As the first educator of your child, you'd never let your child

behind the wheel of a car without a licence.

 

So why do we provide our children with unsupervised internet-connected

devices that are the doorway to pornography, predators, exploitation, scammers and radicalisation before they know how to respect, respond and recover from inevitable online-enabled experiences?

 

We provide people who want to keep children safe online by;

 

  • Extending the protective behaviours framework to the online environment

  • Helping adults to help young people to keep themselves safe online

  • Help adults talk about pornography without talking about sex with children under 12

  • Understand the cyber safety basics - pro's & cons of the internet

  • Parent support on navigating and sharing safe and unsafe apps & sites

  • Parent support for inhibiting  addiction, online predators, scammers

  • Parent support for responding to image-based abuse, cyberbullying

  • Explore if Netnanny services are for you

  • Porn proofing kids (under 12's)

  • Asset-based parenting to broker technology agreements with kids

  • Creating a safer environment for helping disclosure when it goes bad

  • Knowing where and how to report concerns

 

This could be the most important conversation and agreement you ever have with your child. It's not difficult and it's just an extension of good parenting guidelines and communication.

LIVE PERFORMANCE FOR CHANGE

We all have a story...and a chance to celebrate and create connection through sharing them

 

Sensory Story Telling & Showing

Involves others in sharing musical expression is a joy-filled experience everyone should experience at least once in Celebrating life is seldom done. Yet there are so many wonderful stories of resilience, loss and achievement yet to be told and heard. Facilitated storytelling that in their lives.

 

Any group with a commonality can use this mode to explore and celebrate their unique diversity.


Often Sensory life stories are associated with people with dementia and others with limited vocal expression. It empowers individuals to tell their stories because they can be told effectively without relying on words. 

This may encourage confidence in ‘total communication’, strategies using multiple modes of communication which value non-speech forms (Jones 2000) and increase communicative effectiveness in people with dementia (Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists 2013).  Telling a story creates opportunities for connecting with others.

Live Performance - Working with Artists

 

Working with Artists to enable their potential to create unforgetable live performance experiences that captivate audiences.

"When family is what you need ... but not what you want"

This image is from an immersive performance by the charismatic and award winning cabaret artist Michael Dalton whose bravery to explore his potential as a dramatic actor took on two dramatic character roles, to the delight of Melbourne audiences in the leading edge performance space Chapel off Chapel.

The show was a hit and Michael and C4C received rave reviews for the production.

 

 A Different Way Home is a hilarious yet heart-wrenching performance requiring the artist to play a brother in the first half and sister in the second. 

Not an average post performance Q&A...

Working with leaders in Aged Care Annecto

and The City of Stonnington Arts and

Community Development we developed a

support session post-performance.

Here our partners engaged carers from across Melbourne to attend the performance and share their needs and concerns with a panel of age care and carer support services. Using the performance themes to assess how both characters could have made life easier using local resources. This unique approach to connecting and supporting communities beyond the traditional Q& A was a delight to Direct and project manage.

 

A different way home is a performance for everyone.

 

For anyone with an ageing parent or anyone who will die.

 

 Our community partners are still keen to bring new audiences to this work from across Australia and to share expertise the existing challenges and services that are available for ageing fabulously! So If your community could benefit. Call us.
