Back by Popular Demand! The only workshop based conference by community for community.
After an avalanche of negative stories that misrepresent minority communities, we are dedicating our workshops to developing skills, tools and platforms to create and share our own narratives.
Our theme this year is: ‘Changing the Narrative’ and we have four highly interactive workshops with a mix of subject matter experts, community panelists and facilitators running the show. As you know our tickets always sell out fast, so register now to get on the waiting list to give a speech and/or for one out of the four workshops that you are most interested in attending.
Date: August 12 @ 10:30 am – 4:30 pm – THIS EVENT HAS PASSED.

You can register for a workshop as well.
Create your own media platform
Join a panel of African Australian media creators who have created their own successful platforms and learn how you concrete your own or join a growing group of content creators owning their narrative.
Media Toolkit Workshop
If you are tired of all the negative media without a way to respond, this highly interactive workshop will give you practical tools to navigate and respond to the media including creating a media release to promote good news stories, counter untrue stories and give a richer context to the challenges we face.
Tell your own story
Are tired of others telling our story? Join our documentary filmmaker to create a viral video which we want to take global.
Think of the ABC show, ‘You can’t ask that?’ and you get the picture of what we will be creating. This is our 15 minutes to shine authentically.
I want to be a diverse voice in the media
Do you want to become a media commentator on TV or radio? Come and meet a senior media producer and get insider insights on getting your voice heard. This workshop includes a role play opportunity. Lights, camera, go! If you want to be a known voice, this workshop is for you!
