Season’s Greetings and 2019 activities

As the year draws to an end, we would like to thank members and supporters who have contributed to another successful year for Community Tributaries. You can read about our achievements in  2017/18 in our Annual Report.

We have exciting plans for 2019. The venue and time slots for our meetings will change to:
Time: 4.30 pm – 7.30 pm
The first part of the meeting, until 6 pm, will be an open committee meeting which everyone is welcome to participate in. From 6 pm we will run a ‘Business and Personal Advancement Discussion Group’, where community members can exchange views on their business ideas and how to achieve other aspirations.
Dates: Third Monday of every month. Our first meeting in 2019 will be on Monday 18 February.
Venue: Walker Close Community Centre, 180 Millers Rd, Altona North.

We are also planning regular Digital Storytelling workshops in the form of a course run by professionals, who will guide participants in all aspects of this activity, from script writing to editing. Please let us know if you would like to participate in this. Knowing the level of interest will make it easier to plan this activity.

The pop-up shops will continue in 2019 and the first one is scheduled for March 2019.

Here are some other dates to put in your calendars for 2019:
Wednesday 20 March, 6 pm-8 pm: Community Tributaries will celebrate Cultural Diversity Week together with the Walker Close and Brooklyn Hall Community Centre at Brooklyn Hall.
Friday 24 May6 pm-7 pm: Two Community Tributaries members, Clovis Mwamba and George Kabengele will talk about African Knowledge Systems at a Melbourne Knowledge Week event at the Meat Market in North Melbourne.

If you would like further information and/or register your interest for any of the above activities, please send an email to or contact Helena on 0404 857 806.

With best wishes for an enjoyable Festive Season and a Happy, Healthy and Peaceful 2019.
