Community Development Evening Presentations

Upcoming events

The 2015 program will be announced over the coming months. Please join our mailing list to be notified.

About the program

STARTTS’ Community Development Evenings are held twice per year. They aim to provide an opportunity for community sector workers and refugee community organisations to extend their understanding of the complexities of providing services to refugee communities affected by systematic state terrorism and other types of traumatic experiences. Expert speakers are invited to present on interesting and practical topics, which is followed by a case study presentation by an experienced STARTTS staff member and a panel discussion.

These events are open to anyone who is interested and are particularly suitable to those working in community services. They are held at STARTTS’ Carramar office from 6-8pm and are free. Light refreshments are provided.  If you can’t make it to Carramar, there is the option of paying $5.99 to watch the event live over the internet (see below for more details).

The community development evening program began in 2011. Read more about our previous events.
