We witnessed something extra special when more than 100 choristers from the Dhungala Children's, St Paul's Lutheran and the Melbourne Singers of Gospel Choirs, accompanied by Wiradjuri Soprano Shauntai Batzke, and led by Michael Lapina and Deborah Cheetham AO, filled the stage for the finale.

It was the perfect picture to bring together two days of conversations and discussion about social cohesion and resilience. What they then performed will be remembered by all present, including those standing up the back.

On behalf of the conference committee, I thank all of the 720+ who attended. By doing so, you made the considerable effort worth it. We hope that there was something for every one of you, and that your thoughts and ideas will be taken back to your clubs and communities to be turned into projects.
