Wilcannia Men’s Group Workshop
The Wilcannia Men’s Group showed leadership and commitment to creating positive change at a workshop they hosted for community, service providers, government, and local business.
The workshop was run to discuss shared values, the complex problems that Wilcannia is facing, and how to create sustainable solutions through collaboration. After an introduction, attendees split into four working parties to discuss health, crime prevention, youth and business. These priority areas were previously chosen through value lead discussions between the Men’s Group members, The Collective, and Social Service providers.
Ideas for short and long term actions sparked throughout the day’s discussions. These were recorded, and will be presented in a report produced by the UTS Design Innovation team and The Collective. From this, the Men’s Group will create a plan, decide on their next steps, and begin collaborating with other attendees to create a positive future for Wilcannia.
