Participants were able to test their skills through a petition signing at Flinders Street Station as part of Refugee Week. We attended the event to support the group and to see how the participants put their skills into action.
The event was well organised with photography, banners, artwork, videos and other collateral promoting the aim of the petition.
Participants spoke with confidence when discussing the conflict in Darfur, and exceeded their targets for the number of signatures they wanted to collect.
The event also included a live drama that demonstrated the devastating effects of the war as well as traditional dancing. These performances drew large crowds at Flinders Street Station.
Congratulations to the Darfur Australia Network and to the workshop attendees, who put what they learned into practice!
