U3A Brisbane really don’t want U3A to be a well-kept secret so they are inviting people from across the greater Brisbane area to discover the benefits of lifelong learning at an Open Day on Saturday 9 September, 2023:
Location: U3A City Classrooms, 232 Adelaide St. Brisbane.
Duration: 9.30am to 12.30pm
Light refreshments available
President Gabrielle Power West said, “We are excited to welcome everyone to our Open Day. U3A Brisbane is not just about learning: it is about fostering a sense of belonging and creating an environment where seniors can continue to engage positively in our community.”
We are asking current U3A members to help us spread the word about the Open Day. As a non-profit organisation run entirely by volunteers, with a limited advertising budget, we are hoping for everyone’s help with this. There will be flyers available in the foyers at Creek and Adelaide Streets for you to give to friends and leave in places such as your local library, church, café, or on a community noticeboard in your shopping centre; in fact, anywhere you think appropriate and are prepared to take them. And, of course, you can come along to the Open Day and bring a friend or friends with you.
The Open Day will provide the opportunity for attendees to:
• explore the diverse range of courses on offer
• find out about the benefits of participation in U3A
• connect with our friendly tutors who are keen to share their knowledge in an inclusive and enjoyable learning environment
• discover the camaraderie that makes U3A Brisbane a thriving community of lifelong learners.
We are also keen to hear from people who would like to share their knowledge or passion with others. Being a tutor can be rewarding in its own right. As a current member, have you considered running a course yourself? Do you know someone who is knowledgeable or passionate about a subject who would be prepared to share that by taking on the role of tutor/facilitator? There will also be an opportunity at the Open Day to ask about what is involved in being a tutor and the support U3A can provide.
