Like a reality show only real! The Wellard Community came together to make over Wellard Village in just 7 days. Real action! Real results!

The City partnered with RAC through its Reconnect WA initiative, to makeover Wellard Village in just 7 days!

The Wellard Community came together to share ideas, vote, plan, and help deliver placemaking projects over seven consecutive days in April 2023. The Wellard Village 7DM also incorporated a youth-specific element, through which local young people were empowered to plan and deliver their own projects.

The whole process was overseen by David Engwicht from Creative Communities International. David is a world renowned placemaker, community activator, and champion of public spaces.

    The City of Kwinana is delighted to announce we will be partnering with the RAC through their Reconnect WA initiative, on an upcoming project in Wellard.

    Reconnect WA seeks to help re-imagine and revitalise streets and public spaces to create connected, safe and sustainable places. Focusing on The Strand in Wellard, the project will work with local businesses and the community to implement a program of temporary trials, activation, beatification, and interventions in September – November of this year.

    To prepare and plan for this activation period, we will be running a series of audits, workshops and other engagement initiatives throughout June – July 2022. As a local business we would love to hear your thoughts, and would be eager to organize a time to discuss your experiences and to hear your ideas for the area.

    To find out more or to get involved, please don’t hesitate to email place@kwinana.wa.gov.au or call our Place Team via (08) 9439 0200.
