Join the 7 Day Makeover of Gladstone CBD and Mount Larcom Join the 7 Day Makeover of Gladstone CBD and Mount Larcom

Mount Larcom and the Gladstone CBD will get people-powered 7 Day Makeovers and we want you to be a part of it!

International place making expert David Engwicht will help ordinary people create extraordinary places, in just seven days, without endless talk and with all money going into making it happen!

  • Give as little as one hour
  • There's important jobs for everyone, of all ages and abilities
  • Help transform a tired public space into a vibrant community hub
  • Have fun

How you can take part:

  1. Attend the weekend planning workshop, then see your group's project come to life with the help of extra volunteers (work hours flexible days 3 - 7); OR
  2. Attend the volunteer briefing to choose the project or task that interests you. Give as little as an hour.
