EVENT: Power to the People – Bankstown, NSW 

In 2022, The Bank of I.D.E.A.S. will partner with Community Minds to bring it to Bankstown! to deliver our annual National Community Development Conference. The theme for the Power to the People 2022 Conference is “Diversity and Inclusion – Cultivating and Celebrating Our Diverse Communities”.

The Power to the People Conference Program, 2022 aims to create the space for participants to explore how communities can strengthen and become more resilient by harnessing community diversity and focussing on inclusion. The heart of Bankstown displays a constant unearthing of local assets which will be highlighted throughout the Conference Program. The Program in 2022 will be interactive, and will seek to showcase how cultural and socio-economic differences can be used as a point of community connection, busting the myth that differences create barriers.
