Lesbian Incorporated grant round one opens Monday January 13!
For inspiration and encouragement to apply for your own community grant we would like to share with you some of our past successful grant recipients. This week wi shine our recipient spotlight onto The Equality Project and the Better Together Conference.
Better Together is a 2-day national conference for LGBTIQ+ organisations and individuals to come together, share stories, network and learn from each other. It is open to all of the community and brings together the diverse members of the rainbow community.
Better Together is a space for our voices to be heard. It is an opportunity to establish meaningful connections so we can work collaboratively to cultivate positive change.The3rd National LGBTIQ+ Conference – Better Together 2020, was held in Melbourne at Williamstown Town Hall on 10-11 January 2020.
Better Together received a LInc grant in the second round of grants for 2019 to help facilitate scholarships for more LGBTIQ+ people to attend the conference. In order to facilitate a conversation about LGBTIQ+ rights in Australia we need to have a platform to share our ideas and experiences and ask the hard questions. We achieve this through a national conference we call Better Together.
