Rosendale Fun Day

Great day of music, capoeira, reiki massage and face-painting on Peabody Hill

About the Project

Ellie, Shannon and John wanted to get the folks in the Peabody Hill and Rosendale Community together and thought the community centre could be used in better ways.  So, they organised a community event split into two sections. From noon to 3 PM activities were planned to bring young folks together with their older neighbours, as well as offers of services that people may not have known were available to them. The second part of the day (3-5 PM) was aimed towards the young people, specifically, to connect with others with similar interests and to showcase their musical talents. All under the guidance of the soulful and engaging vibes of Your Digital Network.

The Impact

While not as well attended as the Young Leaders intended, the event was a success and those who came out had a great time. The crew of Young Leader organisers did a great job of engaging volunteers to flyer the community and get the word out, clean up the site and get feedback from the crowd. A great day had by all.

Future Developments

In evaluating their success, the Young Leaders identified that they would like more project management training and that this experience has taught them more about engaging communities. There was also interest in improving the social media for the community.
