Who we are:

We on the Activations committee are a dedicated team of business owners and community members who are keen to see Leederville town centre alive and thriving! Our crew know the importance of having more feet on the street and creating opportunities to enhance and build the profile of Leederville as an urban destination.

What we do:

Leederville Connect’s best known work in delivering the Light Up Leederville Carnival, Leederville Long Table Dinner, LeedyPalooza and Squaresville were all imagined and delivered by us. We plan events that we think our local community will love in partnership with local businesses, to ensure community and economic benefits for the area.

Leederville Connect is a civil society organisation, where everything is done by community, for community.

We have a really broad idea of community; for us it’s about bringing together residents, businesses, property owners and visitors. Our bottom line is – “it’s about ‘we’, not me”. We support each other and the rest of the community to make Leederville amazing. We are proud to be one of the pioneering Town Teams that Western Australia is now famous for in place-based planning and community practices.

Our mandate is ‘the Commons’ – those places and things in our cities from which everybody benefits but traditionally nobody takes responsibility. The Commons are where we meet in the street, the culture we create between us, the vibe of our place, the blurred lines between public spaces and private places.

We provide the opportunity for people to shape Leederville and draw on its history of innovation and creativity to continue exploring, experimenting, and inventing the future of this place. As a vibrant, connected, inner-city urban village, Leederville offers us a platform to test ideas for the future of society; one that is sustainable, resilient, and thriving. Our community works with developers, local government, businesses, and other citizens to co-create this future. You can read about our Vision here.
