Calling all Collaborators!
You've been invited to join an amazing group of other inspiring and innovative individuals coming together to cocreate the future of Collaboratory Melbourne (http://doingsomethinggood.com.au/next-steps-collaboratory-melbourne/). For those of you who have already signed up, we'll use this list for ongoing conversations about developments, workshops and other development opportunities. (If you haven't signed up yet, you can do so here (http://doingsomethinggood.us2.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=ade1bf2a502aa5d5cd699b398&id=5d29db142d).)
So what's next? As we'll be working together to make this all happen (well it is the Collaboratory ;) we thought it would be great to get together and have a chat about how best to do it.
We also thought we'd take the opportunity to get to know each other better, learn more about what inspires each of you and find out about your vision for a better future.
So please, come along and join us for casual drinks at Slate bar on Thursday, 16 August.
If you have already signed up to the mailing list and you're keen to get started, we'll also be ready to start talking about next steps and discuss what we can do to help make them happen.
Including things like....
leading working groups and joining the stewardship team forming groups to run workshops and focused discussions, for example on our legal and management structures, websites, or about methods for enabling member collaboration organising upcoming events (especially next month's meetup, on 12 September) contributing to media and online content identifying resources, like potential partners or meeting spaces But mostly we'll be chatting, and working out how to work together.
We look forward to seeing you there!
- John, Hsuhan, David... and everyone else
P.S. For more information about what's going on, check out our prototype Google site (https://sites.google.com/site/collabmelb/programs) - just keep in mind that it's still very fresh.
We don't have working group leaders or a dedicated working team yet, so direct any questions to John (firstname.lastname@example.org) or David (email@example.com).
