David Denborough works as a community practitioner, teacher and
writer/editor for Dulwich Centre. He also writes for the theatre. Recent
teaching/community assignments have included Palestine, Thailand,
Israel, Bosnia, Rwanda, Uganda, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, South
Africa and a number of Aboriginal Australian communities. David’s songs
in response to current social issues have received airplay throughout
Australia and Canada. He is vitally interested in avoiding psychological
colonisation, developing forms of practice relevant to the most
marginalised, and in cross-cultural inventions through cross-cultural
partnerships (such as the Tree of Life and Team of Life). To read about one such collaboration, click here. David is also a co-ordinator of the Master of Narrative Therapy and Community Work, in collaboration with the University of Melbourne.
