Communication for Social Change - Overview of 2012

Really excited for our first meetup of 2013.

Come along to the Kitchen in Ponsonby where we'll hear from Jade and Eddy with Curative (a social business that enables community communication) about the best NZ communication for social change efforts of 2012.

The plan...

5:30pm mingle + nibbles

5:40pm presentation

6:10pm questions

Event hashtag = #net2akl

About the speakers

With a passion for connecting communities, sharing knowledge and empowering social change, Jade Tang & Eddy Helm established Curative; a social business enabling community communication. They first met through yMedia, a social enterprise which partnered tertiary students, community organisations and industry professionals for collective growth. yMedia allowed Jady and Eddy to apply their professional skill-set to give back to the community --  the perfect balance of creativity and connectivity. The more they learnt about the community sector, the more they wanted to help.

Jade and Eddy are the thinkers and implementers of many a good social change project in New Zealand and have heaps to share with us about what communication for social change entails and requires.

Look forward to seeing you there!

    Apologies. Someone has driveninto my garage door and I cannot get in! It's too late to catcha bus, bugger.

      Oh no, sorry about the accident with your garage door. Hope all is okay.

      All is OK. I had to break in with a pry bar and hammer the door and hinges back into shape. When is the next gig?

    Thanks Lindsay for organising a fun and interesting event. Despite having to dash away afterwards I met some really great (and useful :) people - and I could see myself having a desk in The Kitchen in the not too far distant.....

      So glad you feel that way :) Totally think they'd be glad to have you at the Kitchen.

    Thank you to Jade Tang & Eddy Helm. Inspired by the nature and quality of the work presented. It reflects the passion and skills you bring to the job. The grounded approach and creative output (within tight budgets) is both refreshing and inspirational. It reflects your commitment to the task. Well done in every respect.

    Appears I missed out on this one. Hmm... I think social change likely derives through the sharing of a seriously positive social opinion that is convincing and effective enough to bring about the intended behavioural change for the betterment of society :)

    2 · February 6, 2013

    • Lindsey T.

      Hey Joseph. You haven't missed out. It's tomorrow night at the Kitchen in Ponsonby if you're still interested. And agree with your comment.

    Really excited to my second meet up on 7 Feb 2013. I had my first meet up and enjoyed very much. I pass Lindsey's message to my friends to join with us.

    Are you looking for a speaker? I just joined the group hoping to meet people - so it might be a bit forward of me - but I could offer to talk about my experience working with Azuri Technologies?

    They have an award winning business model that combines developing world lighting applications, solar technology, social entrepreneurship, mobile communications, and Big Data. (http://www.azuri-technologies.com/)

    For some background the Economist has a good article on this space (http://www.economist.com/node/21560983).

    It might be too physical tech for the group, but I could easily shift focus onto the network aspects, such as mobile money.

    Just an offer so let me know,
    Dan

    • Dan T.

      Lindsay - Not a problem and probably a good idea to meet the group in person first anyway. Just confirming - the date is the 7th, as this was first posted as happening on 1/29. Looking forward to meeting up.

      1 · January 23, 2013

    • Lindsey T.

      Yep - the date has changed to the 7th :) See you there!!!!

      Kiaora Lindsey, completely understand. Let me know if you want to go with Telecom or Library this time around. I am happy to present, but not on Cloud systems just yet. I only started in my new role in mid December.

      January 14, 2013

    • Lindsey T.

      No prob. I'll let you know about booking a room soon. What might you be interested in presenting on? Format is casual -- really up to you.

      January 16, 2013

  • Pikiora W.

    Auckland Central Library has a room that can be booked for up to 2 hours the Te Marama room, (Library is open till 8pm weeknights) seats about 10 - 12? Not sure if it will be big enough, how many come to a meetup?

    1 · January 14, 2013

    • Lindsey T.

      Great idea! I'll look into it. Never quite sure of how many will come... 10-12 sounds fine, until 18 show up :)

      January 14, 2013

  • Dr. Rebecca S.

    I've already heard Jade & Eddy present, so I'll give someone on the waitlist the pleasure :)

    can it be somewhere in Auckland near the city center...

    December 1, 2012

    • Lindsey T.

      I'd love to have it near city center. But need to find a venue. Any ideas?
