re-imagine

Discussion sessions

We are hosting a series of targeted consultation sessions over the coming weeks. You are invited to register to join us for these online discussions.

Each session will run for two hours and will be facilitated by an independent facilitator. Australia Council staff will join each session. You are invited to share your audio and video during the session to contribute to the discussion.

Each session will be limited to between 10-20 participants. We do ask that if you register and are no longer able to attend, please let us know so that we can release your place to someone else on the waiting list.

If you are unable to join a discussion session there are other ways to engage and provide your feedback, these include the public town halls and the online feedback forum

We are hosting 38 sessions, which includes 18 general sessions and 20 sessions for participants who would like to be in groups with people who identify in a similar way, including:

  • First Nations
  • Culturally and/or linguistically diverse (CALD)
  • Disabled
  • d/Deaf
  • Gender diverse.

Some of the sessions indicated will include an Auslan interpreter and live captioning. Please contact reimagine@australiacouncil.gov.au if you have specific access needs.
