Workshop/Activity Expressions of Interest

Expressions of interest are now open for people interested in facilitating workshops or activities at the Uniting Women  2018 conference, Brisbane from Thursday 27 September to Sunday 30 September.

The theme for 2018’s event is ‘ Weaving Wisdom and Wonder’.

The event offers women in the Uniting Church a chance to share wisdom and encourage each other.  It will provide opportunities for women to develop networks and enhance their knowledge and skills through participation, experience and contact with other like-minded women.

We hope to offer a maximum of 20 workshops or activities across the conference weekend. Ten will be held in the morning (11.30-12.30) and a further 10 in the afternoon (2.00 – 3.30pm).  Each registrant will be able to attend one in each session. Workshops will be held in either a classroom, with computer and data projection facilities, or in part of the auditorium (depending on the requirements that are specified, and some activities will take place outdoors. The deadline for expressions of interest is Friday, 20th April, 2018.

Hosting or facilitating a workshop is a great way to connect with women.  Potential facilitators are invited to submit an Expression of Interest form.

Workshops can be either 60 minutes or 90 minutes in length. Categories you might consider include Leadership, Current Women’s Issues, Spirituality, Cultural Learning, Creativity, Practical Skills, Physical activities , OR…   surprise us!!

This program is being organised by a vibrant volunteer committee, committed to sharing the best of  Uniting Church spirituality.  Expressions of interest will be assessed by the Workshop Committee panel, and workshops will be chosen based on their experiential content, their alignment with the conference topic and the benefits they will bring to the attending participants.

Please forward this on to any friends or colleagues who may be interested in hosting a workshop/s during the event.
