Please join us on Wednesday 17th June, from 12pm to 1pm for a ZOOM Forum on Strategic Regional Welcoming.
Talia Stump will share the learnings and stories from visiting 20 regional and rural communities in Canada, USA, Germany, Norway and Sweden as part of a Churchill Fellowship from 12pm to 12:30pm. This session will explore the key insights: the opportunities, possibilities and challenges to consider when welcoming newcomers into our community.
At 12.30 Talia will be followed by a panel with a refugee speaking about his lived experience seeking safety and knowing welcome, Katoomba North School Principal & local cafe owner talking about their strategies of rolling up their sleeves to actively assist.
