The interactive installation, titled ‘Faces and Places of the Central Highlands’, asks locals and visitors to have their say on the Central Highlands Regional Council’s liveability strategy.
‘Through a number of fun, hands-on activities, participants are able to tell us what they think makes the place they live great and what could be improved to make it even better,’ Deputy Mayor Cr Gail Godwin-Smith said.
‘Draw a self-portrait, add your wish list items to regional maps, create a fun video with the green screen or just relax in the pop-up park. We want to hear from everyone, of all ages and all walks of life.’
The data will be collected at the end of February and used to help guide the development of the liveability strategy.
The strategy is focused on place-based elements and is supported by the Community Wellbeing Indicators Project and the Central Highlands Economic Master Plan.
‘School students, community groups, businesses and families are all encouraged to come and use the space, whether it be for a meeting, a lunch break or just a catch up,’ Cr Gail-Godwin Smith.
‘We want our community to own this space, to make it a hive of activity, discussion and ideas.’
A smaller version of the exhibition will hit the road in coming months to visit other towns in the region.
