Labor Fringe Festival – Put Your Cause in the Spotlight
Thursday, 21st July 2011 at 11:55 am

Not for Profits can push their cause at the 2011 Australian Labor Party National Conference by taking part in the Labor Fringe Festival.

The Fringe Festival program,an integrated component of the Conference, allows special interest and lobby groups to present and encourage debate around their particular issues to the Labor Delegates and the general public, and to attract the attention of the mainstream media attending the conference.

The 2011 Australian Labor Party National Conference will be held at Darling Harbour in December.

Organisers say with topics ranging from homelessness to gay marriage and climate change, from Palestine to nuclear power and refugees, if it’s controversial there’s a fair chance it will be a part of the Fringe Program.

The fringe program is scheduled around the formal conference debates to enable delegates to attend breakfast, lunch or evening events where they can hear and join in informed and specialised presentations and debate around issues of interest, concern and public policy.

The organisers say that whilst the events play no formal part in the conference policy agenda, the opportunity to draw attention to issues that are being debated and generate publicity around these issues to influence that debate is dramatically heightened during the conference.

Not for Profit organisations wishing to participate in the Fringe Program pay a small administrative fee of $250 and get an ad in the official conference program with two observer passes included.

Organisations retain complete control over their content and are responsible for organising, promoting and co-ordinating their events.

Expressions of interest for the 2011 program are now open and any organisations wishing to apply for consideration should complete and return the attached EOI form as quickly as possible to secure one of the limited schedule timeslots.
