Have you ever wondered how you could change the world (or your little piece
of it)? Visit Dickson Village during our pop-up morning workshops and talk
with inspirational locals and career coaches.

We’ll help you get inspired, curious and maybe a little bit motivated.
Could your next move be starting a business, changing your job or a
volunteer project…?

Relax and have fun in our Craft and Catch-up zone for kids and adults. Get
crafting ‘for-a-purpose’ or grab a coffee from a local business.


Saturday 28 November workshop theme: *Sustainability, food, life*

Many of the problems we face seem huge! A changing climate, messed up food
supply chains, diminishing biodiversity. It’s natural to feel a bit lost
and to ask ‘does what I do really matter?’. In this workshop you’ll meet
gob-smackingly inspirational people who are fostering change and working
hard to make the wider-Dickson area (and the world) a better place. Come
along and ask your questions about anything… backyard sustainability, how
to reduce your waste and carbon footprint or what a better food choice
could be.

Be part of a discussion with:

   - Emma Mason, Co-owner of Source Bulk Foods (Dickson) and Leadership
   - Mark Howden, Director, Climate Change Institute at Australian National
   - Nicola Lambert, Founder & Director at Create and Sow Community Art
   - Lyn Stephens, Founding Member of Women's Climate Congress

Friday 4 December workshop theme: *Changing: Business, culture, us*

Dickson is known for its diverse cuisine. But dig a little deeper and
you’ll see other facets of ‘doing things differently’. Come along to this
speed networking session and hear from an interesting mix of Dickson
business owners and locals creating positive change. They have been on
winding career/passion journeys and are adding their own particular flavour
to the area.

After you get to know them a little, you'll have a chance to chat to them
in small groups!
Be quick to ask what you want to before the bell rings and you move to the
next table.

What other businesses or community initiatives could be on the horizon?
What change do you want to be part of?
