8 - 12 April 201 National Youth Week 17 - 18 April 2013 SA Youth Workers Conference

Dr. Phil Daughtry, Head of School Humanities & Social Science at Tabor Adelaide is a keynote speaker at this year’s 2013 SA Youth Workers’ Conference. Last year whilst Phil was in the UK he met with three significant, longterm youth work academics: Maxine Green, Howard Sercombe and Tony Jeffs where they discussed the value of informal education and the social necessity of youth work. Using selected vignettes from these interviews as a framework, Phil will be presenting on the topic: “What this young person

needs is a really good listening to!” which illustrates and expands on the key themes of the discussions. During his presentation he will introduce the personal and professional setting of his interviewees, show some parts of the filmed interview footage and explore their meaning for the Australian context with reference to actual cases of practices. What emerges is a poignant affirmation of the ongoing role and importance of youth work as a necessary facilitator of informal exploratory space in a curriculumdriven and narrow-outcome-focused cultural setting. To hear what Phil and his panel have to say about, “What this young person needs is a really good listening to!” attended the 2013 SA Youth Workers’ Conference on April 17 – 18 at Tabor Adelaide.

SA Youth Workers Conference The SA Youth Workers Conference (17 - 18 April 2013) will be hosted by Tabor Adelaide. The conference expects to attract more than 250 delegates and being selected as the conference venue is an honour and fantastic opportunity for Tabor. Please make delegates feel welcome if you see them wandering around the campus. South Australian youth workers come from a variety of community services organisations. They will gather to experience a series of workshops, forums, networking opportunities and key note presentations. The conference is an initiative of a coalition of youth service providers, youth worker educators and the Youth Affairs Council of South Australia (YACSA). To view the full conference program visit

03 | Liberamenté. “freely, with liberty” Harmony Week Harmony Week at Tabor Adelaide was a week of cultural respect for everyone who calls Australia home. This week long celebration incorporated activities from many countries around the world such as Africa, America and Asia. Through participating in the Harmony activities you would have seen - singing, dancing and performances where you would have learnt and understood how all Australians from diverse backgrounds equally belong to this nation. Marketing and Student Recruitment Manager Sue Giacobbe said, ‘It was a great week of cultural celebrations across Tabor Adelaide... a taste of Harmony which encouraged cultures to share food and stories from different cultural backgrounds.’ Harmony Week at Tabor Adelaide was fun and a free way to discover more about the cultural diversity that exists in the Tabor community.

04 | Liberamenté. “freely, with liberty” Seminar: Global Theology for a PostChristendom Era Professor Veli-Matti Kärkkäinen, April 15 2013 Cost: $60 (includes lunch) Location: Tabor Adelaide, 181 Goodwood Road, Millswood.

The Western Christian Church is having to adapt to a major paradigm shift from Christendom to Post-Christendom and participate more in a globalised Christian community. The challenge is to move beyond our default ways of doing theology which can reflect a time-lag, and tap into the global theological perspectives and ways of king that help us negotiate the changes we face as Western Christianity learns to exist as a minority community.
