This is a free event, but registration is essential! The team at Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) is working with communities across Australia to shift attitudes by changing the way we talk about people seeking asylum. In 2016 the ASRC developed a values-based conversation framework drawn from the ground breaking “Words that Work” research of communication expert Anat Shenker-Osorio. This research found that certain words and phrases have a positive impact on those who are undecided about the issue. The Community Action Workshop presents this framework along with tools and strategies to open up conversations. It equips participants to speak more confidently about the rights of people seeking asylum. By sharing our values and experiences in conversation, we allow people space to make up their own minds, making a shift in attitudes more possible.
