Ryde Community Engagement for Arts Hub

Small Shift is engaged by Link Housing to provide community engagement services for its residents in Ryde, focusing on arts and cultural activities that communities can actively contribute to and be a part of. Following our first workshop, we will be developing an engagement plan to help further build on the community connection.

In an ideas workshop, a participant selected an image of a coin collection. We have many, many images and he picked one of the few that references collectables. At first, we thought he merely enjoyed looking at different coins, until he quietly said ”I will be right back with my collection, I want to show you”. ”When you collect coins you are called a numismatician”, he added. And what a collection he had, carefully stacked up in a cylindrical fabric pocket. Everyone’s passion is different. All are worth celebrating.
