SDN Annual Workshop Uralla (near Armidale) 17 to 21 January 2018

We are looking forward to seeing you at the workshop.

The 2018 annual SDN workshop will be held at Uralla, New England NSW, from the evening of Wednesday the 17th to Sunday night the 21st of January 2018. Since Ned died in 2015, SDN workshops have taken on a new invigoration, which is exactly what Ned had dearly hoped for.

The Uralla workshops have always been highly successful, and the location a delight. Uralla is a quiet, small, attractive town well know for its art and craft community, 20 min drive south of Armidale.

As we only have a limited number of attendees for workshops, we encourage you to book early and send in the deposit to secure your place.

Please note the balance of your fee for the 2018 Annual Workshop is due by Monday 8 January 2018.

Since Ned and John Russell started the network in the 1970s, the key offering for people committed to personal and social change has been the annual and regional workshops. SDN workshops have now been held every year for over forty years.

The 2017 annual workshop was at Seymour, north of Melbourne - a session summary is included below.

The 2018 annual workshop will be held at Uralla, near Armidale, from 17-21 January – make a note in your diary.

SDN workshops have no office bearers.  What we have instead are self-starter members, and much depends on the role played at any given time.  Key members may emerge, fade and re-emerge from time to time, depending on where they’re at.  SDN is not a commercial professional service,  and every participant accepts responsibility for being part of a shared citizen experience.

What to expect

What can you expect during the course of a typical SDN workshop? We have prepared some preparatory information for those intending to attend their first workshop.

The SDN agreement or 'contract'

Our agreement or 'contract' has been, and will continue to be, revised over the years as our 'network culture' evolves. It is used and referred to during workshops as an underlying basis to assist through the complexities and occasional difficulties which can arise.

Workshop email notifications

SDN holds a main annual workshop, and periodic local workshops. Circulars are emailed to all active members, and other likely participants. Should you wish to receive this circular, please advise us.
