FWD + Organise is back! Taking place in Sydney November 22-23, FWD + Organise 2017 will convene hundreds of Australia's top digital campaigners and advocates as well as leading grassroots, industrial and community organisers. With more than forty sessions, we'll showcase the best organising projects and digital campaigns from across Australia and the globe. We're inviting corporate digital marketers and the folks who've really nailed decentralised organising to give us their perspectives, and as always, we'll all learn from each other. We plan full plenary sessions that break down the false divide between digital and field, as well as breakouts, workshops, skillshares and failshares for people who are already experts to further deepen their organising or digital skills. We've invited leading international organisers and digital gurus from all over the world, and we're incredibly excited to announce our first international speaker: Becky Bond: Most recently the co-author of “Rules for Revolutionaries: How Big Organizing Can Change Everything,” Becky served as a senior adviser on the Bernie Sanders 2016 presidential campaign. She then founded the Big Organizing Project and is a pioneer in the use of distributed organising to win advocacy and electoral campaigns.
