Kickstart your Community: The fundamentals of bringing people together

May 20 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Have you thought about sparking your own social gathering or group? 🤔

Maybe you’re keen to bring your neighbours together for a BBQ, or maybe you care about global warming and want to bring other activists together to create change… this 2 hour conversational workshop will help set you up with new ideas and help you plan how to do this.

For the last 14 years, Befriend has been supporting community members to spark their own social group around a hobby or activity they love. We’ve learnt so much along the way and we’d love to share it with you, so you can bring people together in the ways that make sense for you.

**This is perfect for you if you:**

* Feel ready to bring people together (or curious about what this could look like!)
* Have an idea to spark something in community
* Want to become a Host with the Befriend Social Network

**What to expect…**

* A discussion on what makes an inclusive and welcoming social group
* Ideas on different kinds of social gatherings you could start
* Some practical things to consider
* Friendly faces and good conversation
* Information about Hosting with Befriend (optional: last 30 mins)

If you already know that you want to host a gathering with the Befriend Social Network you can stay on for the last 30 mins to get the next steps in the process.

**What to bring:**

* Yourself, as you are
* A pen and some paper to write on
* An open heart and open mind

**If you have any questions or requests for how this can be comfortable for you, message me on Meetup or email dave@befriend.org.au.**


**Want to join more sessions like this?**

This workshop is part of the Your Journey, Your Way series all about connection, community and you! You’re welcome to attend them all, attend just the one, or attend multiple times.

They are run regularly so you can continue to drop in to the workshops at your own pace – it’s designed to be a DIY adventure! The experiences are:

**1. Stepping Stones: Taking the next steps to connect with your community** **(Monday 6 May & Tuesday 4 June; 10am – 11:30am)**
Come along to start thinking about what your next step towards connection might be!

**2. Contributing in Community: Discovering what you love to give (Monday 13 May & Tuesday 11 June; 10am – 11:30am)**
Think about what unique gifts you have to give and where in your life you might like to share these with others

**3. Kickstart your Community: The fundamentals of bringing people together (Monday 20 May & Tuesday 18 June; 10am – 12pm)**
Want to bring people together in your community? Get ideas and tips on how to start!
