A huge thank you to the evening's moderator, Anneli Knight, for overseeing an engrossing and beautifully balanced discussion and to all the panellists for an engaging, insightful and very personal exploration of what it means to be a local.

Jessie Cole shared some wonderful stories of growing up in the wilds of  Burringbar, looking for that meaningful connection with the land that many of us are also seeking.

Rob Garbutt discussed his thesis on belonging and localism in a self-depreciating and reflexive style at the same time raising some provocative ideas.

Delta Kay told us about  growing up in the Belongil, at a time when the stench from the nearby meatworks meant no-one but fishermen and their families wanted to live there ... and from a generous and inclusive perspective that was truly inspirational.

Hopefully everyone who was there came away with a better understanding of the complexities of what it means to be a local, and with new ways to cultivate a sense of belonging...
