Keep Attuned

Keep attuned with what’s been shared in the Creating Conversations events. 

Domestic and Family Violence is prevalent throughout society. Every postcode and every community.

Domestic and Family Violence ‘is a shared social issue’ “… We all have a role, we all have a part. Whether we want to take it up consciously or not.” Dr Allan Wade

‘Creating Conversations’ events are based on the belief that;

  • Society holds the answers as well as the problem.
  • People experiencing Domestic and Family Violence may not engage with the service system, however all rely on many parts of society and the wider ecosystem. 
  • Every individual, group, organisation and community has the potential to play an important role in creating change within our society.

‘Creating Conversations’ events are designed to;

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