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 was 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?
It 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 is a 90-minute community of practice session hosted via Zoom. This features a presentation or discussion around a central theme for everyone attending, as well as break out rooms where participants connect with other members in a smaller group setting.
The sessions are trusted spaces for participants to learn, raise issues, seek support, offer ideas and develop relationships with others in similar roles.
Possibility Lab sessions are based on the interest areas and issues that the group chooses to explore, which develops and adapts over time.
Possibility Lab Community of Practice hosts bring significant experience designing and facilitating group processes and a depth of knowledge about community and disaster recovery.
