Methods
The Brief

We were invited by Cooks River Alliance to facilitate an open space technology session. They wanted to encourage changem-akers to come up with prototypes and work together towards a river clean + loved by everyone. 

Approach

We used asset based community development practices such as open space technology to help change-makers come up with prototypes. Using ice-breakers, theatre and photo-voice we helped the develop relationships + connect to their mind, heart and will. 

OUTCOMES +LEARNINGS

5 prototypes developed.
A cooks river change-makers network that keeps going. A video capturing the story. Amazing memories, friendships and lasting relationships.

Methods
The Brief

Rozelle Neighbourhood Centre contracted me for 3 months  to codesign a program/social enterprise with young people. 

Approach

We formed a youth for impact team consisting of staff, students, young people and partner organisations. Within this team we conducted stakeholder engagement and asset mapping. From here we co-designed a discovery survey and tool for community conversations. In organising youth outreach we facilitated workshops using arts and community conversations for young people in the local and Inner West area.

OUTCOMES +LEARNINGS

60 surveys, 6 community conversations, youth engagement, identification of 4 themes from discovery sessions such as environment, social solidarity, work experience and sports and activities. Asset Based Community Development Training for 20 professionals. We proposed the idea of a social enterprise such as a youth led environmental cafe.
