Guest Article - Town Team Movement to Launch!

Town Team Movement is a not-for-profit organisation setup to support existing and establish new Town Teams across WA and greater Australasia.

Town Teams are community based teams of residents, business, landowners and other community members often formed around a town centre, mainstreet or suburb who work in close collaboration with local councils to contribute to life in that area. Many of the higher profile community based street festivals, markets and other events seen over the past few years more than likely would have been put on by a local town team! There is also a lot of unseen work that Town Teams do that is changing the way local authorities intersect with their communities and the result as more vibrancy, better places, more connected communities and positive change!

Town Team Movement is on the lookout for interested people to get involved. This could include anything from becoming a foundation partner and sponsoring the organisation; attending their world class conference (coming up in September folks!) or another event; or it could be joining your local town team! If you don’t have a local team, want to find your closest team or want to get involved in some way then contact Jimmy today for a chat! | 0412 291 795 |
