Together Forum: "Participation & Collaboration

Borderlands Cooperative & Urban Seed's 'Urban Studies Centre' invite you to a Together Forum on “Participation & Collaboration”.

Join new and old friends as we explore this question:

How do we grow our organisations so they are expressions of good participatory and collaborative principles?


Lucy Allan on collaborative and participatory organising in the Love Makes A Way movement

Lisa Moore on co-housing and its birthing pains

Ann Van Leerdam on power & participation in Credo Café

Jacques Boulet on Men’s violence and their capability to ‘participate’

Yourselves on the questions that arise, during our time of Open Space.

… plus plenty of time and space for sharing music (with Samara Pitt), creativity (with Eleni Rivers), food and conversation. We aim for this forum to be an embodiment of good participatory and collaborative principles!

When: 13 November 2015, 9am until 4.45pm.

Where: The Habitat Centre for Spirituality, 2 Minona Street Hawthorn (near Auburn Railway Station)

Cost: $30 full price, $20 concession

What to bring: Some food to share: either some morning tea, a plate of food or a sandwich ingredient for a collaborative lunch!
