One of the Municipal Association of Victoria’s annual conferences is its national two day The Future of Communities: Power to the People conference. I was there as cartoonist, listening and trying to get as much of the sessions into cartoons as I could. The cartoon above does sum up my impression of the conference. At first it didn’t have the ‘Woohoo!’ Without it the the cartoon seemed to say ‘Oh oh, what have we done?’; that wasn’t what I saw. Adding the ‘Woohoo!’ DOES express what the 250 upbeat and enthusiastic conference participants and presenters showed over the two days. It was a great experience!
