Celebrating Diversity, Creativity and Wisdom

About this Year’s Theme

The theme of the 2018 Australasian Facilitators Network (AFN) conference is grounded in facilitation, of course…

It represents our intention – during the 21st AFN conference – to reflect on and celebrate the journey and legacy of our wonderful facilitation community.

It recognizes and respects the colourful diversity of our people, our perspectives and our practices, and welcomes the creative tensions of our inclusiveness.

It embraces the energy and possibility of new ideas, new members, and new ways (all ways) and also acknowledges, respects and draws on the wisdom of our ancestors, our elders (and elder siblings), and our community.

It contains an element of mystery and will ultimately be what we collectively make it.

Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas and insights as we developed the theme – we trust you will all see threads of your input running through it.
