Homelessness, addiction and racism are symptoms of a deeper problem of disconnection. At The Intersection we challenge you to meet the other, because empathy, diversity and connection are vital to creating a liveable city. All our session can be tailored for schools, workplaces, churches, non profits and community groups.
“We brought a school group through last year for the Empathy Workshop and the Most Liveable City Walk.
This was an absolutely amazing experience - for me, and for the students who didn’t stop talking about it for the rest of the year.”
- Judy Miller, Mountain District Christian School
“As a long–term youth worker—seconded to schools and training youth workers — I would recommend The Intersection to any school looking for informed and formative curated experiences..”
— Naomi Swindon
“It was a great day and I feel we all got something out of the session. It was a good idea to show the contrast in Melbourne between the rich and poor. The presenter spoke very well and engaged the students in deep issues.”
“I thought I was impartial to prejudice regarding a number of topics we looked at, but I've realised you don't really know that until your worldview is challenged, and now I feel more aware of my often critical assumptions.”
“We loved the interactive workshop and the opportunity to be challenged to speak with strangers and to play in a part of the city we would not normally see or experience. We loved meeting Ray - great for the students to interact with someone who has lived a very different life to them.”
“You’ve just changed my life!”
“Demystified and clarified the plight of the homeless. Encouraged compassion. Gave some interesting insight in how to engage with and help the homeless. Provoked a little thought about income inequality and justice.”
“I have been on this session a number of times and found it very worthwhile for the year 9s. It is relevant in terms of their developing interest in a world outside of their own and starting them to think about what is homelessness and how does it look.”
“This was one of the most engaging and interesting sessions I have ever engaged with in my time as an educator.”
“All the content was relevant and interesting and definably challenged many students to step out of their comfort zone. Particularly when they had to share their experiences with other students that they don't normally associate with.”
