5 & 6 April 2023
@ Mercure Perth on Irwin
The Power of Community is Linkwest’s 22nd conference, and our formula of combining opportunities for professional development, networking, and the sharing of best practice in an upbeat, fun and welcoming environment, not only works, but ensures this biennial event is a much-anticipated part of our members’ calendar.
Our last face-to-face conference was in 2019, and much has happened since. The last few years have brought their unexpected challenges, however Centres have not only successfully navigated this period of significant change, but have continued to build, strengthen, and support small and large communities across WA. You have provided essential services, brought people together, and demonstrated extraordinary resilience while fostering resilience in communities.
This conference is for – and about – Centres. It is an opportunity to get together with your peers and celebrate the achievements of a sector that drives community and is driven by creative, skilled, and passionate people.
Held over two days, the conference will feature:
- Inspirational participatory plenary sessions and keynote speakers with a passion for community
- Professional development activities: workshops and master classes, delivered by experts
- An expo/marketplace
- The opportunity to network and learn more about the work and impact of our 150 member Centres
- Our biennial Linkwest Awards. The Awards honour the great work being quietly undertaken by those in our sector over the past 24 months
