Creating A New Story

We aim to add to the new and vibrant culture growing in Adelaide, void of any old “unemployed”, “homeless” or “country town” stigma. We will also call on the valuable past culture/story of the city to build a new story and future story. Because it’s through our stories that we create our value, which then builds a collective culture around belonging and contributing. 

Our Vision 

Our intention is to reinvigorate existing spaces or buildings in the Adelaide CBD, and transforming them into attractive, thriving, creative, social enterprises that are of interest and benefit to the community. Using these existing environments, spaces and structures is an authentic demonstration of the next wave of the ‘sharing and caring collaborative economy’ model – which is ‘utilizing what already exists and adding value’, rather than going to the current ‘startup’ model.

An Invitation To Participate

A genuine invitation to participate is key in this venture and all who choose to collaborate on this project will be committing to creating possibility and opportunity for growth on many levels – Moreover, everyone on the BIG Belonging Team will grow. No matter whether we are learning, facilitating or managing, we will all be growing toward our own potential and mastery, which in turn will add great value to the collective outcome of the project.

“If you want to teach people a new way of thinking, don’t bother trying to teach them. Instead, give them a tool, the use of which will lead to new ways of thinking.” – R. Buckminster Fuller

Importance Of Belonging

People don’t really know their potential until they are given the opportunity to be creative. Then they can demonstrate their ability to respond to their own needs, which leads to a true belonging within their community.

Opportunity To Grow

Humans are creative, innovative and curious by nature. We’re hardwired to be in relationships and it’s through our ability to collaborate and cooperate with each other that creates sustainable and unified results.

Growing Resources

We are seeking avenues of funding, resources, and support to make this initiative a successful and prosperous reality.
