Building Opportunities, Building Communities Conference

5th & 6th December 2018, University of Tasmania, Hobart

In today’s consumer-driven community sector, practitioners increasingly need to provide creative solutions to complex problems with limited resources. Organisations are experiencing growing demand for services and must provide evidenced-based outcomes, as well as value for money. Training and coaching to upskill the workforce has never been more critically important.

The inaugural Building Opportunities Building Communities Conference, presented by Possability, aims to enhance sector professional development opportunities in Tasmania.

The conference will feature national and international innovators in services for people experiencing disadvantage and adversity due to disability, chronic stress and trauma. Presenters will also showcase Tasmanian excellence in providing these services and facilitating change in mainstream services to foster greater inclusion.

Call for papers 

If you are a Tasmanian who is building opportunities and communities who would like to share your work, please consider submitting a paper.  We are seeking papers on best practice in Disability and Trauma-Informed support and employment services.

For more information, see the Conference Brochure and to register your interest in presenting a workshop or paper, complete the Presentation Proposal form and email to by 15 September 2018.


The Building Opportunities Building Communities conference is supported by the University of Tasmania.
