Welcome to the official site of AFN, the Australasian Facilitators Network. Each year, in a different place, a conference is organised by volunteers.

sunset over Alice Springs11 – 12 September 2014. Following the ‘glamour’ of Sydney, where we had a great gathering of like minded people in December 2013, this year’s conference takes us for the first time to the ‘rawness’ of Alice Springs, the heart of Australia.

The Welcome Booklet has gone out to all registered participants, containing important information about:
  • the venue: location and layout
  • items to bring: BYO mug, water bottle and specific clothing
  • registration process: including how to sign up to sessions
  • volunteer positions: choosing your preferred volunteer role
  • pre and post conference activities: registration, location and times, and catering details
  • … And much more!

Walking Together
The Heart of Facilitation

The theme of AFN 2014 offers a new destination with opportunities to explore our connectedness – inter-cultural, inter-personal and inter-personally.

Come to the 17th annual conference in Alice Springs and make connections through facilitation workshops, business networking, pre- and post-conference activities, cultural events, and more.
