This is cool, there’s an expo dedicated to groups that do things that allow people to engage socially.
The Connect and Participate Expo is dedicated to those groups that bring people together, which is a good thing.
They’re looking for groups to get involved now, so if you run a book club, operate a hacker-space, or lead a band of weekend-warrior-bike-jouster-knitters, now’s the time to shoo tthem an email and get your group involved.
What is the Connect and Participate (CAP) Expo?
The CAP EXPO is a community event that will showcase the range of opportunities available for Canberrans of all abilities and ages to join groups and build social connections around common interests. A huge range of possibilities for connection and participation in the community will be at one location on one day; from sport and recreation groups, to art, craft, music, leisure, cultural, performing arts, hobby, social and ‘special interest’ groups.
The Expo will open doors to new opportunities for all.
People attending can participate in ‘Come and Try’ activities, or simply talk with personnel from a wide variety of groups, to determine whether the activities on display are ones they might be interested in. This will allow attendees to make informed decisions about groups they’d like to get involved with, and provide them with immediate contacts and details about the groups’ requirements, and benefits of joining up.
Groups represented at the EXPO will have a valuable platform to promote themselves and show what they can offer to new members.
This is the first Expo of this kind to be held in Canberra, so come along a be part of the experience!
