    What if you could get together with like-minded people who want to connect with others, innovate and share their creativity in order to spark positive change?

    As a creative, entrepreneurial spirit in Ballarat, we think you should get together with us in an informal setting, to have a few drinks, connect with new people, share ideas - and maybe even make Ballarat a better place in the process.

    We can all be passionate and sometimes outspoken about things like sustainability, innovation or supporting local food. But we think we should stop talking about it and actually connect, put our heads together, have fun and action real change.

    We believe Ballarat has untapped creative and entrepreneurial talent, so help us uncover and capture that to challenge the status quo and tackle the local challenges that matter to us all.

    Hosted by Rik Baas (Baas Behaviour) and Glen Jones (Visual Circus), this very special event promises to challenge your creativity and the way you motivate others and yourself, to make real change. During the event you will work in teams and be challenged to co-create a great new idea for Ballarat.

    Possible subjects for the night:

    • Sustainability and the environment e.g. bicycles paths, recycling or reducing power consumption
    • Tourism e.g. supporting local producers and creatives or growing community initiatives
    • Health and Well-being e.g. community initiatives, building local programmes or address local problems.
    • Food and agriculture e.g. buying local, food education or growing your own food
