Event tip: Try quirky
Find something different for your Adult Learners Week event, something unique that people wouldn’t normally do but would love to try. Have a look at what’s popular on social media for the kinds of things that might draw a crowd. Check out the events listed on our website for ideas. Here’s what last year’s event winners Gympie Regional Library had to say.
‘We put on a Kokedama event and it just went off, everyone loved it. We had emails from branch staff saying they loved it too.
‘It usually costs a bit to do a workshop like that and it’s also unusual and making Kokedama is often thought of as tricky. So people were really happy that it was a hands on session where they got to do it themselves rather than it being a demonstration where they watched someone else. Afterwards several people went straight to Bunnings and bought the stuff to do it themselves at home.’
