Historic Indi Community Summit Report now available

The community vision for Indi was unveiled this week at the launch of the Indi Community Summit Report – Delivering Our Vision. In a first for Indi, people from the electorate came together on 24 October 2015 to talk about what communities need to reach their potential. The report is an historic document, outlining actions to make Indi a caring, prosperous electorate alive with opportunities for all. About 90 people gathered to hear guest speakers share their experiences from the Summit. Hothouse’s Tahni Froudist explained how the arts group formed at the Summit was acting on issues canvassed at the event to create a more collaborative approach to grow the sector. Mount Beauty Secondary College students Marvin Smith and Tallon Smith told the audience their participation had given them a voice in a constructive and inclusive environment. The Indi Community Report can be downloaded from the website. Full Indi Summit reports also online.
