RECONNECTED - BUILDING SOCIAL CAPITAL & CIVIC ENGAGEMENT
I’m hoping to identify the most innovative community-building projects in Australia – particularly those ideas which are readily transplanted into a new organisation – and to help to share the key elements of their success across the sector.
DATE 19 May 2017
9.30am – 12.15 pm
VENUE: Trades Hall Auditorium
(enter through the foyer at 377 Sussex Street)
To get to the Trades Hall Auditorium, enter through the foyer at 377 Sussex Street, go past the lifts and down the stairs to the Auditorium atrium.
We’ll provide rudimentary tea / coffee / biscuits to keep people going. If you’re particular, though, there are plenty of cafés around for better caffeine options (this one is conveniently located in the auditorium foyer).
9.00 - 9.30 Arrive / tea & coffee.
9.30 - 9.45 Welcome and introduction
9.45-10.45 SESSION 1 (small group conversations)
a) Identify and describe instances of success in your work that have increased social capital.
b) Where do you look for inspiration, where do you go to learn about innovations in not-for-profit models and organising?
10.45 - 11.15 Morning Tea
11.15 - 12.15 SESSION 2 (small group conversations)
a) Drawing on the discussions in Session 1, what aspects could work across diverse situations? How can we generate more innovation in not-for-profit organising and community building? What’s missing? What does the sector need?
