Description

Hi all

We hope everyone is healthy and well. We are planning a gathering on the 1 December 2017 and yes we know it is very close to the Christmas madness but we want to share some potentially exciting news.

We are in the process to submit a proposal for the activation of one of the Royal Adelaide Hospital site (RAH) buildings for a period of 3 years and we need your help.

The government is suggesting South Australians have a "A Once in a Generation Opportunity" to use the old Royal Adelaide Hospital (ORAH) site to transform Adelaide city centre through the creation of an innovative mixed-use precinct At this stage it would be for 3 years only. We met with Renewal SA, the project managers and they said our idea of a living laboratory incorporating accommodation for country South Australians and travelling academics and eco-tourists, with dedicated space for social enterprises, business incubation and regenerative technology education had merit and they indicated they would consider it.

We believe that we have more than just "A Once in a Generation” opportunity but also a chance to work together to plant another seed of possibility towards co-creating a nurturing society. We see this as a step towards the inevitability of citizen led development. Our concept for the proposal will incorporate unique, interactive, sustainable and innovative ideas to co-create a place which will, using contemporary and Indigenous wisdom and knowledge, link to the East End and to the education and cultural precinct and Adelaide Botanic Garden.

We will present to you our ideas for the proposal and then open it up to gather everyone else's ideas. For the chance to participate and have your ideas heard, please register for our 1 December Open Space gathering.

For those who are unable to attend the Open Space event, we would still very much welcome your input into the proposal where you have a particular interest. Please email us if you have any queries or would like more information.

The meeting is scheduled for 5:30pm start on Friday 1 December 2017 at Christie Walk Community Room (Free event with gold coin donation). Tea and coffee will be provided. Could you please register your attendance here on Eventbrite.

If you know someone who you reckon would also be enthused by this next meeting feel free to invite them to register their interest.

Do let us know if you are not interested in the proposed network and would like your email deleted from the email list.

Cheers,

The Organising Team
