After attending the ETU campaign planning course – focus group – with brief media skillshare by Van Badham, I am excited! Now hoping to go to this:
Rhizome: The September Edition is a free Symposium of Community Arts and Cultural Development Facilitation Skills. It is open to participation by anyone involved in arts, cultural or community work, whether you are currently facilitating ‘development type’ outcomes or just interested in moving your work in this direction.
The event is open to both experienced and emerging practitioners interested in developing more arts, cultural and community development skills through their work. It’s important to note that the types of skills participants will learn and share are not only applicable to the external work we do with communities and groups, they are also relevant to and useful for the way we participate in teams, organisations and even within our friend and collaborator networks.
The event’s activities are designed to assist facilitators expand, build and strengthen their practice.

People from all directions.
A note to indigenous people, Workers BushTelegraph may contain recordings, images and songs of people who are deceased.
We address the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
