2019 Adelaide Conference
The 8th National Men’s Shed Gathering was held at Morphettville Racecourse (Adelaide, South Australia) from 10 -12 September 2019.
The 2019 Gathering, themed Our Community, included traditional content such as information on Men’s Shed operations, as well as a strong focus on acknowledging and celebrating the community of Men’s Sheds and the impact they have on community capacity building. Men’s Sheds are not isolated, stand alone community facilities but rather an activity that is well embedded into their community network.
The Gathering encouraged delegates to share, talk and discover the best ways to keep the Men’s Shed movement momentum continuing forward. Streams were presented by experienced shedders, professional service providers and the highly skilled AMSA team.
Shedders from around the globe are invited to this gathering of the Men’s Shed community in South Australia to share, connect and learn.
