Professional Boundaries and Cultural Bias

Sometimes the obvious connections slip to the edge of my consciousness. I had not made a specific link between professional boundaries and cultural bias until a couple of weeks ago.

I was invited to facilitate a seminar for Interpreters on the theme of Cultural Bias. As I was researching content for the seminar, and more specifically, from the discussions during the seminar, light bulbs started going off in my brain. Neuroscientists would say it was the sparking of my neurons – however, I like the image of the light bulb, I guess I just have to be careful when I switch the light bulbs off and on.

Local Editorial Love

Local Editorial Love
Hot off the press

Our very own Laidley newspaper, “The Valley Weekender”, has kindly given us a local editorial feature in their first 2013 edition.

The newspaper publishes each fortnight, and includes local news, events, and articles about Laidley and Lockyer Valley residents, and towns.

The 18th January, 2013 edition includes features about the Laidley swimming pool, a pilot programme for a local bus service, mention of a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party at the Laidley Library and some great ideas to celebrate Australia Day.  Where else are you going to find details Yabby Races and Dunny Races. There’s even an article about the Miss Pinup Australia contest entrant, Miss Sheree Sherbet, for those who just love all things vintage.  We wish Miss Sheree well for the State Finals in February.  We’re proud to be in such fine company in this publication, and excited that local folks will learn of Davaar’s training and workshops this way.
