Tips for conducting respectful, anti-oppressive interviews
Facilitator: Mandy Hiscocks



You may have your event's organisation down to the themed desserts, but if no one shows up to your Anti-War demo because you didn't promote it, how are you going to win the revolution? This "hands-on" workshop will highlight aspects of effective event promotion including social media, mainstream engagement, and street level soap boxing.

Facilitator: Dan Kellar has been a part of  many event organization teams, some failed horribly, some were "successful", and some met or exceeded the goals laid out beforehand.



Free food!
