City of Melbourne
Community Animator
Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Hi there.....I work for the local government authority of the City of Melbourne in the Libraries & Recreation Branch. My role of Community Animator is based at a busy and vibrant community hub in the inner city suburb of Carlton. The role is a bit crazy, wearing three hats that encompass placemaking, community development and building management.
Carlton is a great place to work - it's a beautiful suburb famous for its Victorian architecture, leafy parks and post war Italian migrant heritage.
Its also a knowledge precinct with two universities as well as an arts, culture and entertainment area.
Carlton is a diverse suburb and like many inner ring Melbourne suburbs Carlton has a sprawling multi tower public housing estate with many residents of East African background and a mix of just about everyone else. The housing estate is juxtaposed to the gentrified residential population and the large cosmopolitan international student population.
The community hub is a microcosm of the surrounding suburb and my role is to empower community to use the centre, strengthen and foster networks and to initiate collaborations both internally and externally....oh yeah and to organise to fix the plumbing!
