Micro say

Inspiration can come in many forms! So we'd love you to upload any stories, pictures, artwork, music, etc., that you think helps define what Mansfield Shire looks like in 2040. This is a great option for those who are creative and are short on time.

Be part of the deliberative panel

At the end of the project, we will take all the insights and comments from every survey, workshop, and submission and facilitate a representative, cross-section panel of Mansfield Shire residents to decide upon the final vision. This will take place 9am–1pm on Saturday 31st July as a workshop in Mansfield Township. This is a great option for those who want to meet other members of the community and want to deeply shape the future of Mansfield Shire.

NB: If COVID-19 prevents us from having in-person workshops, we will move the workshops online.
