Street by Street is a national project initiated by the Centre for Civil Society. Its goal is to revive the practice of community, and the art of neighbourliness, re-kindling connections between neighbours that might once have formed spontaneously but which in our day and age require a little facilitation.
The Street by Street model is local neighbourhood networks in small population precincts of between 200 and 400 households.
Each network is supported by a coordinator and a network partner organisation in developing its activity.

Input is being sought at a Design Lab.
Tuesday 29th April
10am to 12.30pm
Angliss Conference Centre, Melbourne CBD
There is no cost for residents and community organisations to participate in this Design Lab.
The project is seeking input on the project and its operating model and also ideas on how the project can be resourced on a large scale (membership fees proposed below being one option).
