Event description
"Community organising” and “organising” are in vogue. But what do different approaches look like? Let's share, reflect and build together.

About this Event

"Community organising” and “organising” are in vogue. Whether you are an issue based activist organisation, a more traditional broad-based community alliance, a union, or running an election campaign - it seems everyone wants to organise people.

But what exactly do we mean when we say “organising”? Do we actually mean the same thing? Are there ways we can we learn from each other across our different practices?

Can we strengthen our own and each other's work by drawing out what is similar between us and what we do differently, and when?

This intimate afternoon workshop will dive deep into our practice and strategies, reflecting together on how we embrace 'organising' and build power.

It will also feature a ‘who’s who’ of different organising practice, including:

  • Jonathan Cox, Deputy Director of Citizens UK
  • Alison Rudman, Senior Organiser with the Manufacturing Division of the CFMMEU
  • George Woods, Lock the Gate
  • Isaac Astill, Tipping Point
  • And others

Amanda Tattersall, who first brought the term ‘community organising’ to Australia when founding the Sydney Alliance, has been researching the lexicon of different organising practices and will share analysis.
