WHAT: Trampoline Day - Bounce Ideas With Curious People
DATE: SATURDAY 28 FEB

Trampoline draws out the knowledge and passion of the unique community attending to create a line-up of inspiring stories, presentations and conversations.
Be a part of making Trampoline happen and join the inspiring conversations, hear from passionate people and, if you're keen, share your gifts.
Our next Trampoline Day is at the innovation and social enterprise hub - donkey wheel house - 673 Bourke St Melbourne (10am–4pm) Saturday the 28th of February.
How do I do it?
The day starts with a scrum session where participants are offered 15 seconds to pitch their talk and nominate themselves for one of the day’s many simultaneous presentations/conversations. Anyone can present at Trampoline and we do not hand pick speakers, so we expect those attending to put themselves forward and share something they find amazing. Trampoline is dedicated to what YOU find amazing, inspiring or worth sharing. You might want to talk about a sliding doors moment that changed your life OR maybe you just want to listen to what gets someone else out of bed in the morning. Either way they day is always filled with a bunch of inquisitive minds, knowledge, sharing and passion.
Kinfolk will be open all day to keep you nourished and energised.
