    #RightTrack Workshop - ASRC

    #RightTrack Workshop hosted by the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre

    We are delighted to announce that the ASRC will be running a special edition of their half-day workshop on tools and strategies for having value-based conversations with people of influence about the issues that impact people seeking asylum.

    The content of the workshop draws on the findings of the ground-breaking Words That Work messaging research led by communications expert Anat Shenker-Osorio, which sought to find more effective ways of communication about the rights of people seeking asylum. 

    By working together we can transform the way our community thinks about people seeking asylum and get the conversation and our shared future with people seeking asylum on the #RightTrack.

    The #RightTrack campaign works to share the findings of the Words that Work messaging research project that studied the impact of language on 1500 people all around Australia. The findings give us messages and strategies to build community support for people's right to seek asylum. The ASRC has since been working on a conversation framework which helps people to have open, values-based conversations that don’t have to involve fact-sharing or be an information overload. The conversation model is based on sharing our values and personal responses to the issues faced by people seeking asylum.

    The content of this workshop is designed to complement any existing advocacy you may already be involved in, and on the day you'll meet and work with others taking action in your area. So, whether you're already deeply involved or just starting out, confirm your spot now!
