Our learning span from Social finance/ Impact investing, how philanthropy, business, community and government can work together to make change, all the way to the gaining understanding of where Canada is at with reconciliation with the Indigenous peoples.

Thank you to all the incredible organisations in Canada who were so open to letting us learn from their successes and failures.

Story Factory is taking creativity to a whole new level through the new Prescription Poetry workshops at their Parramatta centre.

When: Workshops will be run in Term 4 this year, and Terms 1 and 2 next year.
