Brisbane Digital Activism Training

6th, 7th + 8th of December 2016

Applications are closed.

The majority of places will be awarded early as possible for early applicants to allow people to organise their time.

Learn how to get maximum online impact for your campaign

We encourage activists and grassroots campaigners of all skill levels to attend. The training will suit those already working on a campaign and will be useful to newcomers looking to get involved.

  • Thinking strategically about campaigning online
  • Tools and tactics in the digital space
  • Basic website setup
  • Social media
  • Media for events
  • Branding and Graphic design
  • Keeping your data sorted
  • Security

We are putting together a program similar to the previous events we have run. The exact program will be influenced by the local Brisbane needs and skilled volunteers. View the previous programs in Byron Bay and Melbourne.

This unique opportunity will bring highly specialised knowledge – usually out of reach to most grassroots campaigners – into an affordable and inclusive space.

Anyone is welcome to apply and we encourage diversity. Previous digital experience is not necessary. Places are limited and we will select the people who we believe will make the most effective use of these new skills in changing the world.
