THRIVE: towards a vibrant, connected inner-city for all

Community Workshop for Woolloongabba, Dutton Park and surrounds.

As your Councillor, I want to know your thoughts about life in our inner-city neighbourhoods. What do you love? What do you find challenging? Do you have any burning ideas for how we can improve life for inner-city residents?

Inner-city neighbourhoods have long been a refuge for diverse communities and alternative ways of living. Along with this rich tapestry of cultures, the inner city's proximity to, well, everything, has led to a population boom in recent years. With so many people wishing to call the inner city home, it's clear there's something uniquely appealing about the community and lifestyle these urban neighbourhoods offer. 

Empowering residents to have more control over how their neighbourhoods change is essential to ensure these changes benefit everyone, not just the wealthy few. We want to hear from you about what you think we need to build towards a thriving, connected inner-city community.

Accessibility: AUSLAN interpreters are available for this event - please contact my office to arrange one. The venue has limited wheel chair accessibility. Get in touch by calling 07 3403 2165, or emailing [email protected], to see how we can meet your accessibility requirements. Car parking in the area is limited, so please consider using active or public transport if this is possible for you.

Catering: There will be free tea and biscuits available. VHS Café will also be open and selling cakes, sandwiches as well as barista coffee. 

This event is taking place on the lands of the Jagera and Turrbal peoples. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded and that many past wrongs and ongoing injustices are yet to be rectified. This always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
