About Southern Events
Southern Events was established in 2002. On the 23.02.2002 the incorporated body known as Southern Events was registered with ASIC. Southern Events is a not-for-profit organisation.
In 2002 Southern Events negotiated with Channel 31, a Melbourne based public broadcast TV station to present weekly broadcasts of the 'Words of Peace' television series. Southern Events managed the finances, scheduling and promotion of this series until 2015.
In 2014 Southern Events facilitated the series being broadcast in Adelaide providing the same services as in Melbourne.
Over the years there have been many types of Events and promotions for Peace assisted, organised or managed by Southern Events Inc. These range from participation in Peace Day Events at Melbourne's Federation Square to smaller seminars held in public halls, libraries or Community Centres.
Within a changing world, Melbourne has welcomed people from many nations escaping war, societal breakdown, famine and persecution. Peace is a strong focus for many of these newly arrived citizens. Southern Events is currently negotiating with several refugee action groups in Melbourne to assist them in delivering programs that focus on inner resources such as choice, hope and the possibility of personal peace.
