Conversation Caravan partnered with Mosaic Lab to carry out engagement with young people to consider the design and location of a youth centre.
The purpose of the engagement was to primarily understand where young people would like a youth centre built and why. Second to this was their view and understanding of what a youth centre is, and the types of activities they would use in a centre. Providing the project team with an understanding of both the interests and needs of the local young people.
The activities complemented the City of Port Philip Survey and aimed at better understanding the:
- desired location for a youth centre
- types of activities to be included as part of a youth centre
- principles for the centre (design and build), and
- current needs within the community that could be met through the youth centre.
The report detailed the type of events and activities young people would enjoy at a youth centre; they articulated their desired locations: close to transport, other entertainment and in a nice location. In addition, they also described their ideal environment: light, bright, homelike and open.
