   An initiative of the Belonging Strategy with Marrickville
              supported by Centre for Popular Education UTS

In 2003 Marrickville Council commissioned the Centre for Popular
Education at UTS to coordinate a community leadership project as
part of Council's 'Belonging" initiative. Over the past 18 months
we have run a series of workshops for between 15 and 30
recognised and emerging "community leaders" within the
Marrickville local government area. The main aims of the
workshops were to encourage participants to reflect on their
practice, examine new ways of working effectively together,
develop long-term "dreams" for the betterment of Marrickville,
and plot how they might achieve them.

In 2004 the participants and facilitators of this program will be
co-authoring a handbook, organised around the topics covered at
this Forum. A draft copy of this handbook will be given to
everyone attending this Forum and the final handbook will be
available later in the year.
