8th National Men’s Shed Gathering

“Men don’t talk face to face, they talk shoulder to shoulder”

The Australian Men’s Shed Association 8th National Men’s Shed Gathering will be held at the Morphettville Racecourse Adelaide SA and is expected to attract over 300 delegates. It aims to promote the community of Men’s Sheds throughout Australia and the contribution Men’s Sheds make to their own communities.

Delegates will come from a broad spectrum of backgrounds, including ‘shedders’, shed coordinators, health and aged care providers, educators and policy makers.

The 2019 Gathering, themed Our Community, will include traditional content such as information on Men’s Shed operations, however, there will be a strong focus on acknowledging and celebrating the community of Men’s Sheds and the impact they have on community capacity building. Men’s Sheds are not isolated, stand-alone community facilities but rather an activity that is well enmeshed into their community network.

The Gathering will encourage delegates to share, talk and discover the best ways to keep the Shed movement momentum continuing forward. Streams will be presented by experienced shedders, professional service providers and the highly skilled AMSA team.

Shedders from around the globe are invited to this gathering of the Men's Shed community in South Australia to share, connect and learn. As the event draws closer, more information and registration details will be made available. 


Early bird registrations open 1 April 2019. 

Super early bird rates will open on 25 February 2019 for one week only unless sold out prior.  More Information.
