Your freelance community, your way

Building the community you want

There’s no point in trying to buold something for the Australian freelance community without involving the very community it serves! We’ve seen it all before. The cheap platforms that want to cash in on our vulnerabilities. The coworking joints that speak about being friendly that lack the warmth we seek. All kinds of promises and ideas have floated past the Australian freelance community shores from 2010 until now. 

But the one thing we’ve learned from running the Freelance Jungle is that it has to be community driven. 

The best source of information are the freelancers, organisations and services that look after us. The best people to ask for change on a community level are the very people it affects. 

That’s why part of the Freelance Jungle and being a part of the Australian freelance community is about participation. 

Here are a few ways you can make the Australian freelance community your community: 

Join the community 

Pop your head into the Freelance Jungle via our events page and see what’s on offer online and off. We run social meetings, stress downs and all kinds of educational events.

Freelance recognition

Are you blown away by the commitment to their craft another freelancer has shown? Is there someone who is always willing to help with ideas and advice within the community? Is there someone kicking serious goals within and for the Australian freelance community?

Well, we want to hear about it.

One of the things that the Freelance Jungle is currently developing is ways to provide recognition for those freelancers who are doing great work.

Stay tuned for exciting details as they unfold by staying close to the newsletter.

Advocate for freelancers

The Freelance Jungle is for freelancers by freelancers. We realise making a happy, healthy and prosperous Australian freelance community is going to take many hands.

So if you have a particular area of interest that you want highlighted, we want to hear from you. 

You might be a gun with the law. You could be the accountant that wants to see the end to red tape. Maybe you are the maverick that wants to protest for proper support. Or the troubadour itching to write the songs to capture the movement.  

We want inspired, committed and focused freelancers to join the fray.
