Key to the map


The information centre is where to collect information/supplies helpful for the journey (e.g., what may be useful background information, different ways of approaching the topic, who developed the site and why).


The road sign indicates the three, main, different approaches to working cross-culturally.


The brochures are guides to different routes and features of particular interest.


The clusters of different types of trees indicate the many ethnic, national and religious groupings of cultures which tend to shape other cultural groups (such as those based on gender, age, sexual orientation). Traveling amongst them considering each culture separately is one type of journey.


The ridge is an example of a different approach – looking across the many cultures to see similarities and differences amongst them.


The path directly to the beach is a very different type of route – for those who want an approach which doesn’t require consideration of all the details of the terrain.

Hazard Copy

The hazard signs indicate that no matter how one travels there are many problems that are associated with cross-cultural practice.


The boat sailing on water indicates a different mode of travel for those who undertake the practice of working cross-culturally – using what has been learned in relatively well-mapped terrain to guide travel in a different mode, that of reflective practice.


The mountains represent issues which may be difficult to traverse, but if attempted can lead to a different level of understanding (for example, how power intersects with culture and issues of equity and equality).
