People Power: Models that are changing communities and cities

Conferences & public forums


6:00pm Thursday 05 October


Counterpoint Community Services
7 Raglan St,
Waterloo NSW 2017


Kurt Iveson from Sydney Uni will explore examples of different ways in which different communities around the world bring about change.

What can we learn from what is happening elsewhere? And how can our communities have a greater say over what happens to them?

His research with Amanda Tattersall identifies five models which they call playing the game, mobilising, organising, prefiguring and parties. As Kurt presents, we will consider the utility of each model within our local context. Kurt Iveson and colleague Amanda Tattersall has been doing international research on Organising the 21st Century. Their work focuses in 5 ways people in communities can change things.
