Movement for change – QCOSS State Conference 2018


The stories we tell ourselves now will determine the future. How do we change these stories to create the future we want? How do we move our communities closer to creating greater wellbeing by challenging how we all talk and think about the world?

We will focus on the stories we tell as organisations and as a community, what they mean and where they lead us. We will then explore how we change the narrative and inspire more positive outcomes by the actions we take today.

Jane Caro, author and social commentator, will host the first day of the conference and we will welcome Richard Denniss of The Australia Institute as keynote speaker. Luke Pearson, Founder of @IndigenousX will present the closing session.

The second day will be about action for change and we will develop actions to create the movement for change. What can you do? What can your organisation do? What is QCOSS’ role?

At a time when we are seeing the demonisation of groups such as welfare recipients and asylum seekers and our community is disenchanted with the democratic process, we need a new way to describe the change we want to see for all Queenslanders.

Are you ready to play your part?
