A great conversation

14 May 2015

A great conversation Image

The Cafe Kere Kere Team at Boyd Community Hub welcomed a larger than expected turnout for its inaugural “Community Conversation” on Tuesday, April 21.

More than 50 local residents gathered inside the Boyd Assembly Hall, to discuss ways of activating Southbank by establishing a new regular community event.

The evening was the brainchild of Kere Kere’s James Murphy and was hosted by Time and Space founding director Bill Jennings, who launched a number of activities on the night.

Participants were asked to get together in groups of three and answer a series of community-related questions.

Following the conversation, people were asked to summarise their discussion in one word, with responses ranging from opportunity, home and belonging to diversity, trust and cohesion, and write them down on a poster.

The evening concluded with a whole group conversation, where people were asked to come together, network and provide feedback and ideas.

Mr Murphy said the response to the forum was “overwhelming,” with 42 feedback forms received.

He said the Kere Kere team would use the information to continue to work with the Boyd Community Hub, the City of Melbourne and local stakeholders to formulate ideas for new community projects.
