Local governments play a critical role in planning for and creating great places. However, sometimes doing less and letting go of some control is just as important.
Town Team Movement would love to share our experience helping local governments get out of the way and create a more enabling environment for community members.
Facilitating small quick wins such as community events and art projects can be an effective communication tool in creating a stronger community and bringing together community ideas, skills and resources. We have assisted to bring together and organise community members to develop several events around Australia, which build community pride, confidence and the understanding of place.
This process of assisting to facilitate small quick win projects often leads to community members becoming more confident and more organised, starting their own town team committee and continuing their own place-led journey.
