The Preludes: Communities in Control 2020

The 2020 Communities in Control (CIC) conference is just around the corner, and to celebrate the move to a virtual event this year, we’re kicking things off early with two special CIC Prelude webinars.

The preludes, which will run in the week before the event, are FREE to attend, and will launch a conference that’s sure to re-energise community sector workers after the toughest year in memory.

Information on the webinars, and registration links, can be found below.


WEBINAR: The journey of the Uluru Statement towards voice, treaty and truth, with Thomas Mayor

Since the Uluru Statement from the Heart was issued in 2017, Thomas Mayor has travelled around the country to promote its vision of a better future for indigenous Australians. He’s visited communities big and small, often with the Uluru Statement rolled up in a tube under his arm.

His book about that journey – Finding the Heart of the Nation – weaves in the personal stories of Aboriginal community leaders, artists and many others, making clear what the Uluru Statement is and why it is important.

Hear from Thomas at this webinar, and learn how you can join him, along with a growing movement of Australians, in the fight for substantive constitutional change.

This FREE webinar will take place on Monday 9 November, 1-2pm AEDT.


WEBINAR: Getting reconnected in a climate of crisis: lessons from radio, with Lisa Leong

The COVID-19 crisis forced us all to retreat from many of the networks and connections that give meaning to our lives. Organisations shut their doors, sporting seasons were suspended, community events postponed. How do we reconnect in this climate of crisis?

Radio host Lisa Leong treasures meaningful conversations and understands their profound importance in today’s digitally dominated world. In this webinar, Lisa will draw on her experience of on-air community building to offer insights on reconnecting your community.

Lisa will be joined by four prominent leaders from the not-for-profit sector.

This FREE webinar will take place on Wednesday 11 November, 1-2pm AEDT.

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
