Possibility Lab is a Community of Practice to support people working in community recovery
What might be possible if we connected together, across Australia, to learn, share and sustain ourselves as we do our important work in community recovery?
Possibility Lab has been established to provide a space to learn together, workshop issues and challenges and form a supportive network with peers to explore working in community recovery.
Who is it for?
This is an invitation-only community of practice for less than 100 people. It is tailored for people working in community development and community recovery roles, especially related to bushfire recovery following Black Summer.
How does it work?
Every month there will be a 90-minute community of practice session hosted via Zoom. This will feature a presentation or discussion around a central theme for everyone attending, as well as break out rooms where you will connect with other members in a smaller group setting.
This will be a trusted space where you are able to learn, raise issues, seek support, offer ideas and develop relationships with others in similar roles.
Possibility Lab sessions will be based on the interest areas and issues that the group chooses to explore, which will develop and adapt over time.
We know that working in recovery is busy, and you may not be able to make the sessions each month. That’s okay – you’re encouraged to attend when you’re able to.
Possibility Lab Community of Practice hosts bring significant experience designing and facilitating group processes and a depth of knowledge about community and disaster recovery.
