Dates: Thursday 13 April and Friday 14 April
Time: 9:30 am  – 4:30 pm

Work in teams to find a “hack” for your client! Learn how to think creatively and then pitch your idea. The team who can pitch the best idea will win $3000.

The Big Issue is an independent, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supporting and creating work opportunities for people experiencing homelessness, marginalisation, and disadvantage. 

Morning tea, lunch and afternoon snacks will be provided on both days.
