The Neighbourhood Project is building a global movement of local people, shaping projects that make their neighbourhoods stronger and more connected.
These practical placemaking projects breathe new life into local spaces, while inspiring people to connect. At the same time, the program offers strategic support behind the scenes to help governments and urban managers become more community-led, reduce red tape, and embed long-term change.
Join us to see how a single project in your area can drive long-term systemic change in process improvements behind the scenes.

Busy weekend for Neighbourhood Project participants! It’s a special feeling to see big ideas come to life with the help of so many committed people, from a mural and diy pop-up furniture by the Edithvale Collective to a new children’s garden at Fawkner Food Bowls 👏🏽 We’ll be featuring all six of the current Neighbourhood Projects over the coming month as they get up and running. #tnpnews ...

The Neighbourhood Project communities have been hard at work over the summer, and their gardens, social spaces, artworks and events are starting to take form - and along with them, the stories and friendships that make a place a home. Keep an eye out for weekly updates over the coming months! #tnpnews ... See MoreSee Less

Keen to run a mini project in your neighbourhood? Doesn't matter if you have an idea or even much time, come on down to MPavilion tomorrow to learn the 101 and meet others to help! See you there... and of course we'd forgive you if you brought a picnic 🌞 #TNPnews #TNPevents
People & Place: A DIY neighbourhood experiment w/ CoDesign, Pt.1
Put the principles of placemaking into practice at 'People & Place', Melbourne’s first DIY neighbourhood improvement social experiment, connecting people to place through an inspiring (and simple) process of change.
CoDesign Studio’s CEO and co-founder, Lucinda Hartley, will lead this collaborative and highly engaging two-part workshop with a ‘Placemaking 101’ for the design-curious. Then, a group of strangers with no previous design experience will apply what they’ve learned in a real-world, anything goes experiment. The CoDesign team will mentor participants along their journey, concluding after 21 days when participants reconvene at MPavilion to share their experiences and swap insights.
This is the first workshop in a two-part series. Part II will take place on Saturday 16 December.
FREE EVENT(S)! Register here: www.eventbrite.com.au/e/mmeetspeople-place-a-diy-neighbourhood-experiment-with-codesign-studio-ti... (Registration applies to both workshops).
