Showcase '07 in Cairns

November 2007 saw a very successful showcase in Cairns, where community leaders gathered to share outcomes and solutions. Find out more about the showcase here.

Online Events: e-Show n Tell

The day after the live showcase in Cairns, community leaders from two projects presented in an online network event, known as "e-Show n Tell". Jan and Denece from East Gippsland joined Rod MacDonald from Byron Bay Shire ACE in a wide-ranging discussion of the stories and issues from their journeys.

You can find the recording via this link (in Elluminate), and the remnants of the online event at (you may need to register / login).

[..] reaching disengaged and disadvantaged client groups, including people with disabilities, disengaged youth, mature age workers, long term welfare recipients, and people in rural and remote areas."

A Change of Scene

Entrance10aPhotoByDelia.jpgIn April, '06, Delia Bradshaw gave a stirring presentation to the community leaders, entitled "A Change of Scene", on the topic of Community, Technology and Learning. "Have these words become 'weasel words', or are they still words that can stir our hearts and our heads, and move us to action?" You can revisit this presentation here. (You'll need flash player for the audio.)
