Description

If the business of babes has left you feeling woefully underinformed about world events, join our News Hour for a lively discussion on current affairs, facilitated by award-winning journalist, Sunanda Creagh from The Conversation. 

Over coffees and baked deliciousness, we'll wrap up the headlines, go deep on the topics you want to hear more about, throw in some robust debate, not to mention plenty of laughs.

Keeping up with the news is time consuming! At News Hour we'll get you up to speed on what's happening, nationally and globally plus introduce you to a bunch of smart, engaged parents. 

Kids under 1 are welcome to join the conversation, but there's also a creche available.

Kin & Kind

Vendor sincce 2017

Come along to our workshops and meet-ups and learn a skill (or brush up on old ones), talk about what you love, meet new people and spend time focusing on something other than child-rearing. Our broad range of workshops and meet-ups cover everything from creative writing, gardening and crafts to career guidance and personal development. We'll make you a coffee and most importantly, childcare is offered in the same building (kids 0-6 months are welcome to join the classes).

Kin & Kind is about exciting the passion you once had but have lost in the fog of babies, kids and home, in a safe and supportive environment. We want you to leave feeling energised, with a sense of achievement that’s unrelated to the kids. 

At the very least, you're 90 minutes closer to nap time.

05 July 2017 • Kin & Kind News Hour

The class was well structured. Sunanda had good knowledge and I learned a lot. The environment was very welcoming, including a friendly host who held my baby for a bit, as well as cups of nice tea and biscuits and lovely decor. I didn't use the onsite childcare but it looked great!

I highly recommend News Hour to everyone! It was enjoyable, interactive, and inclusive. Plus it was inspiring to see fellow participants learning and engaging with the content - there were many smart women in the room.
