Who we are:
This group is currently looking for new leadership and members! Want to be involved in a group like this one? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a Facebook message.
What we do:
While the other Leederville Connect Town Teams focus mainly on the town centre area, this group works to strengthen the community within the suburbs of Leederville. We want to bring neighbours together and inspire collaborative community initiatives and parties on the streets.
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.
