Plunge into the energy of the OCEAN FILM FESTIVAL World Tour 2019 returning to the QPT outdoor amphitheatre!

Australian audiences will be able to immerse themselves in the wonders of the ocean without getting their feet wet this coming March as the Ocean Film Festival Australia makes a splash in cinemas across the country.

The films document the beauty and power of the ocean, and celebrate the divers, surfers, swimmers and oceanographers who live for the sea’s salt spray; who chase the crests of waves; and who marvel at the mysteries of the big blue.

The films feature captivating cinematography, complete with awe-inspiring underwater scenes and fast-paced wave sequences that have been captured from unbelievable vantage points. Mesmerising images of schooling fish, colourful coral gardens and jellyfish blooms are complemented with up-close footage of curious marine creatures such as seals, dolphins, turtles and sharks.

Heart-stopping shots of surfers riding wild waves and adrenaline-inducing scenes of divers swimming with white sharks will leave audiences on the edges of their seats. Viewers will gasp for breath as they follow champion free divers and encounter marine life from around the globe.
The films encourage viewers to dive headfirst into ocean culture. Inspiring and thought-provoking, the Ocean Film Festival Australia is filled with moving footage, touching interviews and insightful narrations. Each of the festival’s films conveys a deep respect and appreciation for the world’s oceans and the creatures that call them home.

Outcomes Framework Conversation
Mar

1:30 PM13:30

Outcomes Framework Conversation

WACOSS has been working in partnership with the Department of Premier and Cabinet, and with support from the Department of Finance, on a whole-of-sector Outcomes Framework. The aim of the Framework is to create scaffolding that assists in linking outcomes across
different agencies and programs, and in particular to address some of the siloes in service delivery that have been evident across program, agency and departmental levels, in turn generating better service delivery outcomes.

As part of a broader engagement strategy, WACOSS is inviting you to come along to an interactive conversation about the Framework’s first and second prototypes. The session will provide some introduction to the language and context of outcomes, and to the project itself, and then delve into facilitating advice and feedback on the domains, population level outcomes and indicators that form the pieces of the Framework. We welcome participants to come prepared with their own outcomes measurement strategies and/or frameworks from your sectors, so that we can spend some time ‘mapping’ these to the broader outcomes framework.

There is no charge to attend this course courtesy of a Lotterywest grant,
