FWD + Organise 2017

Australia's top digital and organising talent converge for two days in Sydney, November 22-23.

I'm coming!

Some of us mostly work behind a keyboard, others spend our time talking with communities in the field. Some of us obsess over circles of commitment, recruitment events and building relationships. Others focus on innovative email tactics or new tools for online customisation and targeting. The truth is online and offline collide in our social change work just as they do in our lives.

FWD + Organise is where people powering social movements, digitally and face-to-face, come together to share best practices and skills – and build strong bonds of collaboration.

WHERE AND WHEN?

FWD + Organise 2017 will be at Barney’s Centre in Ultimo, Sydney from 22-23 November.

WHO WILL ATTEND?

FWD + Organise 2017 will convene hundreds of Australia’s leading community campaigners, organisers, digital & data experts, and social marketers. Organisations from every sector are represented. Get your ticket today!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN?

We’ll showcase the best organising projects and digital campaigns from across Australia and the globe. With more than 40 sessions to choose from, there’ll be skill shares and trainings, unique panels, keynotes and case studies. In 2017, it’s all about the practical skills and practices you can take away and apply in your day to day. Plus, lots of delicious food, and time to connect with people over meals and drinks.
