Creating Space Project

From ordinary women, come stories that are real and inspiring.

Ruth Nelson, a psychologist, asks women to share a story from their lives.

Together, they explore that story to uncover their personal values and beliefs.

Every person you see has a story. This podcast is about taking the time to listen.

What’s it like to be the first in your family or the first in your community to study at university? Kara gathers stories from students who are in that position. Many of the students are Aboriginal.


Kara reflects on what she is learning from listening to these incredibly resilient students about injustice and their desire to help their communities heal from the damage done by colonisation.


“I think the more I listen… the more I realise I have no concept or understanding, not just about Aboriginal culture and Aboriginal history and Australian history, but about everything. The more I learn, the more I realise I know nothing.”


“What you can do is really ensure that the time that you’ve got, you live well and you live with purpose and you live with respect.”
