Unfortunately we have not been able to attract enough interest in this tour and so it will no longer be happening.
Steve, however, is still considering coming to Australia around the same time to undertake some independent work.
If you are interested in engaging Steve's services directly or if you can help sponsor Steve coming to Australia in some way please contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Steve Hargadon will be touring Australia in February 2013.

"...if we engage and participate and build, we have a very different experience than if we're just followers"
