Aboriginal Culture

A page to connect you to professional development to broaden your knowledge of Aboriginal

and Torres Strait Islander histories and culture.

I loan because…
I can. Simple. Opportunities for success should not be limited by income or location. Who knows how many life-changing concepts or inventions we’ve missed already because someone hasn’t had the means to develop their idea. Support the little people so their ideas can become big. Why wouldn’t I loan? Oh, and PDme will match dollar for dollar any donation made through our website to Kiva. Turn $25 into $50 and make that difference bigger!

About me
PDme is a small Australian business focused on assisting regional and remote teachers to have the same access to professional development that their metropolitan counterparts have. Our website,, includes a database of professional learning events and seminars available across Australia, helping link educators to professional development near them.

Combining elements of our most recent conferences that focused on Museums and Galleries in their Cultural Landscapes (Brisbane 2017) and Museums and Galleries as Agents of Change (Melbourne 2018), in 2019 we travel to the geographical centre of the nation to tackle some of the biggest thematic areas that occupy much of our national conversation. Museums and Galleries are situated at the very centre of that conversation in relation to our place within our communities and the way we are deeply implicated in both a local and national understanding of Australia’s past, present and shared future.
