MEET THE (EXTENDED) MOSAICLAB FAMILY

MEET THE (EXTENDED) MOSAICLAB FAMILY

The MosaicLab family has grown over the past 18 months, with the addition of several new faces joining our directors Kim, Keith and Nicole

We’re a tight-knit team and our members are selected based on a very strict set of criteria (i.e. they must laugh at our jokes, enjoy early starts and share our love of eating too much at team meetings). But all jokes aside – every MosaicLab team member must share our philosophies and values around engagement and participation - so our team is selected with great thought and consideration.

Read on to discover more about Kate, Rachael and Jane, including what drove them to work with MosaicLab and what’s in the works for them this year.

First look: New immersive deliberation training experience

Earlier this year, MosaicLab trialled an exciting new training concept based on participatory learning.    Hosted by Public Libraries Victoria Network and State Library of Victoria and facilitated by MosaicLab, the experience gave participants an in-depth understanding of, insights into and skills in deliberative engagement.

Following foundational engagement training sessions, and some online learning and discussion, PLVN representatives from across the State came together to experience a mini (but very real), 2-day deliberative process.

This exciting, in-depth training opportunity is now available for other organisations to experience.

Did you see last month's invaluable deliberation insights post?  We shared a video chock full of ideas and advice from project managers who had been through a deliberative journey.  

This month, we're sharing the second video in this series - insights from decision makers who have led their organisations though a deliberative engagement experience.

Join us for an interactive forum at IPAA Public Sector Week 2017!  If you have ever wondered 'what is participatory or deliberative democracy' and 'how do I include these ideas in my work' then this is the session for you.


You will have the opportunity to experience some of the key tools used in deliberative engagement processes and understand the complexity and opportunity that comes from navigating a diverse group of people around a complex issue and facilitating the decision-making process.

In June 2017 we ran our first ever Deliberation Ready Training session for leaders, managers and decision makers in Melbourne.    The day was designed to help participants get themselves and their organisation ready for a successful journey into deliberative engagement.  

Because we love to share resources and are always seeking to help others to improve their engagement skills and processes, we are giving you free, exclusive access to one of our fabulous Deliberation Ready Training resources our participants had access to during their session.
