The people behind bindarri are putting all their energy into a new organisation called actionskills.org
Bindarri was designed to promote people using creativity to make a better world and to encourage others to join them. Our new organisation is moving one step further to organise and facilitate events and to build a community to share skills and resources. Come and get involved.
Our first post was published on May 6th, 2009 and our last one was on July 15th, 2013
From the creators of Bindarri, comes our new project:
We are looking for four passionate change makers to undergo an eight week intensive training program provided by some of Australia’s leading digital change makers.
Gain skills and experience in order to co-create strategy, build websites, communicate online and use social media to build movements of positive change.
There are no financial fees for the participants who will earn their stripes by producing various online projects and websites for real positive change projects.
Apprenticeships start on May 13th. Applications close: May 3rd.
You may have noticed that we have been a little quiet around here at Bindarri. That’s because we have been working on some other projects. We are very excited to support the awesome CLIMARTE by working with the team to build a shiny new website. Check it out at http://climarte.org/
Arts for a safe climate!!!!

Bindarri has been lucky enough to organise an extra Melbourne show for the amazing BeeHive Design Collective (Canada) and HipHop activist Testament
Sakura from BeeHive Design Collective will be presenting their latest mural titled “The True Cost of Coal” in large format.
Sakura will tell the story that is illustrated with loving detail within the mural of Appalachia’s (Canada) history in context to coal and the communities fight for a positive future. The creation of the story involved over two and half years of research in their local community as well as the story crafting and refinement.
See the mural in detail here: www.beehivecollective.org/english/coal.htm
In support of the Beehive Design Collective, Testament will drop some rhymes of revolutionary Hip Hop to make the night more festive.
We will also hear briefly from a Melbourne NGO discussing the related issues in Australia and what you can do about it.
Next Monday Lunchtime (12:30) at Hub Melbourne

I was lucky enough to see this show last night. As well as a beautiful artwork, the Beehive Collective work is a very detailed story on the history of the Appalachian Mountains in Canada narrated live. The story took 3 years and 100 people to put together and involved extensive community research and consultation. See it here: http://www.beehivecollective.org/english/coal.htm
And then mix in some beats n lyrics…
