Beginning in March 2014, the Melbourne Development Circle is publishing a member review of our events. This review has both a profile of the member and a little information about the event for us to look back on.

It was a cold, wet day when the SDC community took to Our Big Kitchen for SDC’s first social event of the year.

Your voice, your passions, and the ability to vote with your feet!
Do you want to be part of the most interactive conversation on development happening in Melbourne? Do you want to hear from and be heard from in a dynamic maelstrom of like-minded and motivated thinkers?
The Melbourne Development Unconference is your opportunity to learn from your peers about the experiences that interest you and to share your experiences with them in an open format that encourages engagement.
Melbourne Development Circle and Friends of AVI are hosting Melbourne’s first ever Development Unconference on Saturday 5 October in Fitzroy. We’re bringing together community and international development professionals, students, the social enterprise community and the “development-curious” for a one-day, participant-driven event where attendees determine all topics and sessions.
How does it work?
Attendees will arrive at 9.30 and begin the day with an opportunity to network over a tea or coffee. Those interested in presenting or sharing their work will add their session to the schedule. Attendees will then select the session that interests them or start a break-out discussion group of their own. Throughout the day, participants will take part in more than 25 different sessions that will include: workshops, presentations, round-table discussions, how-tos, and more.
This event is designed to empower our amazing community and facilitate skill-sharing and collaboration around ideas in community and international development.
- Buy a ticket! (Your ticket includes lunch, coffee, tea and snacks). Complimentary drinks will be served at the venue from 4pm-5pm to wind up the day.
- Do you have a discussion topic or workshop you’d like to organise? A how-to or project case study you’d like to share? If yes, then please nominate that you wish to be a speaker on the day when you register.
