Community, what is the benefit of it? For me its friendships, social connection and the ability to experience and make something better then you can relative to if you were on your own. I've talked and written about the importance of social connection to improving you mental health and wellbeing in this this article here https://storyofthemind.com.au/blog/grassrootsmentalhealthmovements
In the 2nd week of our existence we won $890 from the Vic Park Collective, who hosted the Victoria Park Neighbourhood SOUP. From there a new tradition was born, being a monthly board games night in the Town of Victoria Park.
Some of the games featured in our monthly board games night include:
- Monopoly Perth Edition
- The Game of Life
- Cards Against Humanity
- Exploding Kittens
- Connect 4
- and more...
Entry is $5 per person, with the funds going back to the Victoria Park Community Centre.
If you like to bring your own games of you own let us know and we can negotiate free entry.
