Creating Conversations

Creating Conversations is an event series designed to bring people together with the understanding that domestic and family violence is a ‘shared social issue’.

Featuring Dr Linda Coates and Dr Allan Wade from the Centre for Response Based Practice, the series supports individuals, communities and organisations in the service system and wider ecosystem, to understand domestic and family violence and to reflect on how to respond in ways that uphold dignity and build on safety.

Introduction

"We all have a role, we all have a part, whether we want to take it up consciously or not." | Centre for Response-Based Practice

Service system and wider Ecosystem image

Creating Conversations events are designed to:

  • Provide an opportunity for people and organisations that wouldn’t normally intersect or come together.
  • Create the conditions for conversations that enable sharing and learning about each other’s challenges, contexts and contributions.
  • Discover the possibilities for individual, organisational and collective responses and pathways for progress.
