V4I’s role in the next Federal election

Voices for Indi congratulates Cathy McGowan on the announcement she will seek re-election as the Member for Indi. Voices for Indi exists to build an active 21st century democracy in Indi and will be involved in the next election and every election for the long term.

Voices for Indi was formed to give voice to the people of Indi. It was during the 2013 process of Kitchen Table Conversations culminating in the V4I report that revealed interest in an independent candidate who would be aligned with the values people sought in their representative and the issues of importance expressed by the people. V4I was the catalyst for Cathy McGowan’s campaign but the campaign was conducted by a far broader and bigger group of people than V4I.

A new round of Kitchen Table Conversations for Indi

Kitchen Table Conversations provided the power behind Voices for Indi and Cathy’s election campaign in 2013 and the process has since captured the nation’s attention.

MPs, electoral candidates and communities across Australia are now utilizing the Kitchen Table Conversation process as an effective, inclusive and enjoyable way for people in their electorates to have their voice heard.

Please consider Hosting a ‘Kitchen Table Conversation’ which involves getting together 10 people (friends, family, work colleagues, sports mates, neighbours, community groups) at any venue that suits you (at home, outdoors, local gathering place, at work, at a pub, playgroup) to discuss the questions outlined in the KTC kit. Those who participated in the first round of KTC can attest to it being an enjoyable and satisfying activity to be engaged in.

Cathy will be conducting briefings across Indi to outline the process and answer questions. For details see
