We are currently planning training sessions to teach activists how to hold a conversation as part of our ’10 Conversations’ campaign. The first training session will be held in the Action Centre on Thursday 13th January 2011 with two more to follow in late January/early February. Everyone is welcome to attend and learn how to have a conversation about refugees. Further details will be provided in early January.
We will be sending out conversation booklets shortly for those of you who would like to test them out on your family and friends over the Christmas holidays. We would love it if you would give these a go and let us know how you found it.
Furthermore, we will also be holding a brunch at Bondi Beach on Saturday 22 or 29 January 2011 (TBC) to highlight the journeys refugees undertake to reach Australia. The brunch will be held in conjunction with the painting of a mural by local artist Shannon Crees. Shannon’s mural will be based around refugees’ journeys from darkness to light.
