ABCDE Learning Sites
As part of the Mowbray Learning Site, the following 'Dear Mowbray' short film was created. Evi van der Niet and David Adams from Action Crew visited Mowbray in October and mentored Mowbray Heights Primary School grade 5 students over three full days in how to make a film. Pop up crews learnt the roles of camera, sound and lighting operators and the interviewer role and told us it was one of the best days they had experienced.
Asset Based Community Driven Effort (ABCDE) Learning Sites
The City of Launceston has collaborated with Bank of I.D.E.A.S to deliver three Asset Based Community Driven Effort (ABCDE) Learning Sites in the suburb of Rocherlea in 2017, Ravenswood in 2018, and Mowbray in 2019. From July 2020, Council is working with the Youngtown community to implement Launceston's fourth ABCDE Learning Site over a 12 month period.
The Learning Sites enable a community to identify their assets, build connections and create change in the heart of the community to benefit those living within the area. The approach is about focusing on 'what's strong, not what's wrong'. As one of the first local governments to embrace this strategy based approach, the City of Launceston has worked with local leaders within the suburbs to identify, connect and mobilise their assets in order to take action, make positive change and directly shape their own community’s future.
How it works
The Learning Site will occur over a 12 month period based on eight touchstones. The City of Launceston has employed a Community Connector for this period to guide the Youngtown community through the process.
