About Big Bang 2017

Big Bang 2017 will focus on peer learning, where you and your colleagues can lead workshops and activities to develop practical, tangible skills.  It is an immersive learning experience for engagement practitioners and Bang the Table clients. 

Big Bang will be an intense collaborative peer learning event, curated by Peer Academy. The objective of this conference is to empower our practice community to feel even more confident in advocating the value of community engagement within your organisations.
