ASRC Founder and CEO Kon Karapanagiotidis, warmly invites you to this four hour workshop to share the findings of our ground-breaking ‘Words That Work’ messaging research that was led by communications expert Anat Shenker-Osorio, and discuss how this has informed the development of a values based conversation framework. One that is proven to positively shift community attitudes on how we should treat people seeking asylum.

We will be generously hosted by the ANU College of Law Migration Law Program and the support of Welcome Legal.

In this workshop Kon will share the ASRC tools and strategies to have values based conversations with people of influence in your networks and discuss how we can create an alternative narrative using the power of conversation as a tool for social change.

If you believe the key to changing the policy direction of current and future Governments lies in our ability to reach out beyond the 'echo chamber' and bring new people into the conversation please join Kon at this important event.
