Who we are:
We are a small team of volunteers from communication, marketing and digital-skilled professions who live, work or play in Leederville.
What we do:
The communications group was formed to make sure we were able to share all things Leederville with whoever would listen! We manage all content for Leederville Connect’s social media channels, website, emails and marketing tools. We provide advice to the other sub groups and the management committee on how to promote our events and our other work.
How to get involved:
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.
