National ARAN Conference in Canberra: 20-21 May 2017
20 May 2017 - 21 May 2017
What is ARAN?
The Australian Refugee Action Network is a network of 27 Refugee Networks and large Refugee Groups across Australia. RAR is a founding member of ARAN. In fact the idea for an Australian Network of grassroots activist groups was born at the 2016 RAR National Conference.
The conference will be moderately priced ($50 waged, $20 unwaged) and is open to all who are interested in refugee activism and advocacy.
At the ARAN Conference we will:
- Discuss ways to improve communication and co-ordination between grassroots action and advocacy groups in the refugee sector.
- Discuss and establish campaign policy.
- Share ideas and experience for mobilising and effective campaigning.
- Form a workable system of national coordination.
Communication and coordination between our groups and organisations will maximise the impact of our various campaign actions and efforts.
ARAN has set up a national conference committee to draft the agenda, arrange speakers etc. The Canberra Refugee Action Committee will take care of logistics – venue, food, etc.
Bookings for the event will be open on 1 March 2017 at: https://www.trybooking.com/OZGU
In the meantime, please hold the dates of 20 and 21 May 2017.
