Social Action and IT

Making Links Conference
11th - 13th November 2008
Melbourne University, ICT Building, 111 Barry Street, Carlton, Victoria, Australia

Making Links is a conference that seeks to engage interested people, organisations and groups working at the intersection of social action and IT - including community workers, educators, trainers, not-for-profit organisations, school teachers, environmental campaigners and activists.

Making Links

The Conference seeks to:
  • Bring the community sector together to access resources, training and services, and to share ideas, skills and creative applications of technology;
  • Explore the possibilities ICTs generate for communities whose voices have been marginalized and excluded from the mainstream;
  • Showcase innovative, grass roots ICT initiatives in community cultural development, outreach, and e-learning;
  • Build and develop networks amongst workers and activists interested in how ICT can be used to support social justice.
The conference, which started in 2004, is organised by a steering committee composed of representatives from a range of not-for-profit organisations.
