Over the past four years we’ve created some ground-breaking events involving speakers who have challenged and inspired our thinking. This has involved some successful collaboration, including with The Australia Institute, other think tanks and progressive organisations. Papers and resources are available here.

Winning with Obama
In July 2009 Catalyst co-hosted an event featuring Executive Director of Wellstone Action, Jeff Blodgett.
Jeff was Minnesota State Campaign Director for the Obama Presidential campaign and has a wealth of experience in running progressive campaigns.
We've dug out a video of Jeff's address from the archives and published it in seven youtube installments. Jeff gives insights into progressive campaigning, looking at authentic candidates, grassroots organising and campaigning online.
Restoring Rights at Work
In Nov 2008 Catalyst hosted Professor Keith Ewing in a seminar series examing Australia's new industrial relations laws from an international context.
Engaging with Labor in Power
In August 2008 Catalyst hosted a forum to discuss policy change under Labor.
The forum brought together leading progressive thinkers and organisations who discussed new possibilities and approaches for engaging with the new Labor Government.
