CHECK-IN Closing Ceremony

The CHECK-IN peer support and self-advocacy program is coming to an end. Let’s get together to reflect and celebrate.

About this event

Dear community members, fellow travellers, lived/living experience workers, colleagues, and friends who have joined us on this journey so far,

It is with heavy hearts that we bring the news of CHECK-IN not receiving further funding past 30th of June 2022. Here at CHECK-IN, we are all absolutely gutted to learn our program will be coming to an end. Although our hearts may be heavy, they are also thankful. Thankful for the opportunities of collaboration, friendship, community and livelihood we have experienced together.

We are holding an online Closing Ceremony (like the olympics!) to meet and reflect on the good times of CHECK-IN.
This will be an online opportunity, Thursday 23rd June, 4:30pm-6pm, held via zoom, for community members, VMIAC staff and Committee of Management, partners and stakeholders to gather and share in a closing ceremony.

At this event, we will:

  • Present our evaluation findings
  • Facilitate a small group activity (in breakout rooms, or independent journaling)
  • Share some artworks, poems, letters as part of a collective check-in document

How you can participate in the event:

We are aware many of you have created artworks, poems, written letters, contributed to collective documents and perhaps even created songs whilst you did the 1:1 sessions or joined in groups! Or maybe you would like to create something new to contribute. Fabulous. We will collate all of these sparkling innovations into a collective document to be distributed to the community, to show what the experience of CHECK-IN has been like. What do you think?

Please send us everything and anything you would like to contribute, by 5pm Monday June 13th via email If you have previously shared something with us, that you are happy to be included in the this collective document, please email us to state what it is, and that you would like it to be included.

Upon registering via Eventbrite, you will receive an email with the Zoom link.

If you are interested in showing your artwork, poems, letters or something else at this Closing Ceremony, please email or call 1800 845 009.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday 23rd June from 4.30pm-6pm, via Zoom.

In Solidarity,
