Canberra’s Festival of Democracy will involve participants in a deep, rich and respectful conversation that fosters understanding of

·       power as a concept

·       the different ways to frame power

and exposure to

·       the mechanics of power

·       effective representation

·       improving the legitimacy and accountability of elected representatives

·       how people actually make change happen.

We stand for defining the transformational change we want for democracy in Canberra and looking for ways participants might engage in such a change.

We stand for ‘learning through conversation’ as a process to provide Canberrans with a stimulating and engaging event from which plans for further action will arise.

The weekend will involve

·       brief speaker sessions

·       conversation

·       the sharing of ideas

·       learning how to make change happen

having fun steering transformation that fits into our normal lives
