MCN: Sustaining Activism


MCN_logoA relaxing session that will share new ideas and tools for activist wellbeing.

Holly Hammond (Plan to Win and Plan to Thrive) recently travelled to the UK and Spain for a research trip about activist health and wellbeing.

Her trip included:

  • A writing retreat in the north of Spain to collate findings, write articles and develop curriculum for future workshops.

Holly will share insights from the trip in a suitably relaxing and nourishing session that will provide new perspectives on how to show care for yourself and other activists.

This is a Melbourne Campaigner’s Network event. MCN holds regular gatherings for campaigners, activists, and organisers to discuss ideas, exchange resources and discover new approaches to social change.

Location: Rm 4, St. Vincent’s Hospital Function Centre, Aikenhead Bldg, Cnr Victoria Pde and Nicholson St Carlton (don’t go to Ross House or 60L by mistake!)

Time: 6pm til 8pm followed by dinner nearby.

Date: Thursday 19 May

Cost: Free to those who contributed to crowdfunding for this trip, suggested donation for others $10-$15 (nobody turned away for lack of funds).

Register: Please fill in this survey to say you’re coming along – and give input into an Election Recovery Day (July tbc) and Activist Wellbeing Retreat (November tbc).
