The historic Abbotsford Convent arts and cultural precinct

We aren't pumping money into a commercial conference venue or a multinational hotel chain. The Abbotsford Convent is a social enterprise and  amazing community arts precinct, that we are proud to have as a venue. We think its spaces are much more stimulating and interesting than a regular conference venue.

Here is a selection of the stimulating spaces that we have selected at our venue at the Abbotsford Convent. We are using the same spaces as last year and adding more spaces, throughout the precinct. 

FAQs

What is LAST?

LAST nominally stands for Lean, Agile and Systems Thinking. We exist to help people who work in digital product development and related fields to share knowledge about the way they work together. We have grown from grass-roots, collaborative, practitioner origins in the meetup community, with people from small and large organisations, and a wide range of industries participating.
