This back-to-basics workshop is the “Aussie Politics 101” they should have taught us in high-school.
Everyone welcome: bring friends!
To participate in democracy, we must understand how it works,
but most of us only have a vague knowledge about our political system.
Come and explore:
∙ How Parliament is structured.
∙ The difference between state / federal Parliaments.
∙ How democratic are our elections?
∙ Do we have “proportional representation”?
∙ What does “balance of power” mean?
∙ How does preferential voting actually work?

Think you get it?
We dare you to come along and discover what you don't know.
