How we did it

Community pop up in the Snowy Valleys.


  • mapped community assets and social connectors for seven localities in the Snowy Valleys
  • identified which of these assets bonded social groups, bridged interactions between groups and which linked groups to institutions and organisations
  • assessed their strengths and challenges
  • consulted stakeholders via pop-up stalls, interviews, community noticeboards and “Love Letters to Local Places” to determine small, medium and big ideas to build more socially connected and cohesive local communities
  • prepared a roadmap for each area that outlines who can do what to make the ideas happen, and
  • documented all of this on a Connected Community Roadmap for each of the 7 areas and prepared an overarching report for the whole LGA that summarises the social connectors across the Snowy Valleys.

The outcome

Council now has a clear framework it can use to work in partnership with its communities – to realise the aspirations and ideas of the Snowy Valleys communities to build more socially cohesive and connected local communities to better withstand future challenges and emergency events.
