St Ar­naud looks to the fu­ture

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

St Ar­naud res­i­dents have par­tic­i­pated in three work­shops to help de­velop the Fu­ture Story for St Ar­naud pro­ject.

The ses­sions, led by Jeder In­sti­tute ex­perts, fo­cused on equip­ping the St Ar­naud com­mu­nity with prac­ti­cal tools and prin­ci­ples to dis­cover and mo­bilise strengths.

Par­tic­i­pants worked through an as­set-based com­mu­nity-de­vel­op­ment ap­proach, fo­cus­ing on as­sets, strengths, abil­i­ties and po­ten­tial. North­ern Grampians Shire Cr Tony Driscoll said the work­shops pro­vided a per­fect plat­form for the com­mu­nity to have a say in the fu­ture vi­sion.

“All three ses­sions were well at­tended. Par­tic­i­pants shared ideas, con­sid­ered the live­abil­ity of our re­gion and were re­spect­ful and en­cour­ag­ing,” he said.

“I com­mend the fa­cil­i­ta­tors, co-or­di­na­tors and of course those who gave up their time to be part of the work­shops.”

Com­mu­nity-led projects to emerge through­out the work­shops in­cluded a St Ar­naud Film Fes­ti­val, Street Art, En­hanc­ing Tourism, Re­vi­tal­is­ing Re­cre­ation Ar­eas, Recre­ational Wa­ter, So­cial En­ter­pris­ing and more.
