In 2013 PaCSIA facilitators Serge Loode and Brad Lewis organised and facilitated a sustained consultation and dialogue process with Australian South Sea Islanders, Mununjali Traditional Owners, descendants of plantation owners, current landowners and the larger Beaudesert community which led to the This Is Our Story Commemoration Ceremony on 24 August. Together with Scenic Rim Regional Council we have finally documented this highly successful process. The case study detailing the process and the groups involved is available for download below:

ASSI 150 This Is Our Story Case Study

What made the process unique was the combination of large-group Community Café events which brought together many different stakeholders to share stories and experiences, small-group restorative circles to explore the journeys that different stakeholders were embarked on and ongoing negotiation and event planning in a small planning committee drawn from the different stakeholder groups.
