The Melbourne Campaigner’s Network is a monthly gathering for campaigners, activists, and organisers to discuss ideas, exchange resources and discover new approaches to social change.

Join us for three gatherings before the end of the year

Thursday 6 October: Introduction to Story-based Strategy
The way issues are framed and communicated – the battle of the story – can be integral to the overall success of a campaign. Holly Hammond reports back on training by smartMeme held in Oakland California this June. Read the report on this session.

Wednesday 2 November: Taking a Campaign Online
How do you design an online campaign? Tim Norton, Oxfam Australia Digital Campaigns Coordinator, will outline how to choose your target and which digital tools most effectively engage your supporters and achieve your aims. Find out more about this session.
