Investing in our own backyard: How does, & how will, social enterprise contribute to community development in Brisbane?
Wednesday, April 18, 2012 from 5:30 PM to 8:00 PM (EST)
With special guests including Susan Black (Social Ventures Australia), Ben Hamley (SmartArtz) and Simon Kalinowski (Chairman, Hello Sunday Morning & Brisbane entrepreneur), on Wednesday 18th April, 2012.
The rise of the social enterprise, or third sector, is bridging the world of business and charity in an attempt to deliver positive, lasting change in our world. And Brisbane has not been isolated from this. The Brisbane Development Circle is pleased to host an evening dedicated to exploring the current role of social enterprise in Brisbane, and where future opportunities reside for the third sector.
Join us on April 18th at 6pm, along with Susan Black, Ben Hamley, and Simon Kalinowski for what we’re sure will be another engaging evening. Please click through to The Development Circle website for more information about these speakers.
We trialled collecting a small door fee at the last event in order to provide a few refreshments to those who came along. This was reasonably succesful, although we could definitely improve on the catering side! We are going to continue this for this event. Your $10 admission fee covers a refreshments and discounted drinks, with proceeds going towards Bleeding Heart Gallery, a great Brisbane social enterprise.

“The Brisbane Development Circle (BDC) believes that via innovation and collaborative effort, the development sector can continue to increase its impact as a positive change agent within communities in Australia and abroad.
The aim of BDC is to create a platform for the Brisbane based development community to share ideas, explore potential collaboration, and discuss topical development issues. Membership of the group is open to anyone, across all fields within the development sector, as well as those who have a general interest in development issues.
We do this by creating a monthly opportunity for those working in the international aid and community development sector to come together for discussion and networking in a relaxed environment.”
