‘Open Days’ are a fun way to asset map local organisations whilst also strengthening relationships between community organisations. Essentially, various community organisations come together (usually at a park or any other available community venue), to offer a range of activities for the community to come and ‘try before they buy’, or simply just discover what is in their back yard and connect with other residents. Each organisation brings and runs a different activity and there is usually some food on offer. It can also double as a fund raising opportunity for local clubs and organisations. Below are examples of flyers from these types of events.

Meet Your Neighbour Initiative in Schools
This is a very practical exercise to help both connect community and asset map that was conducted by North Pinjarra Primary School students in WA. Essentially, students were asked (with their parents) to visit one neighbour they did not know and find out a little bit about them. The information and questions for the exercise was printed on an A4 sheet of paper back and front. A very simple and low cost exercise. The various ways to display the information gathered are restricted only by the imagination and resources of the community (for example, as a booklet, on wall at the local shops, featured each week through a local media source).MEET YOUR NEIGHBOUR

Community newsletters are incredibly beneficial for connecting community, discovering and revealing community assets and providing a tangible project for residents to collaborate around and build relationships. And of course a useful tool for disseminating information. They need not be expensive or time consuming. Both of the examples given were created on an A3 paper folded in half. These examples are from Willagee and North Pinjarra – two small communities in Western Australia (approx. 400 homes).North Pinjarra Community Newsletter January 2017

Big Idea Cards
Big Idea cards simply ask residents to share their one big idea for their community. These cards help create the community visioning mindset as residents think about what they would like to see in their community, but also serve as a great source of ideas for resident driven projects and initiatives. Provided are two sets of Big Idea Cards – one designed for children and one for adults.Adult Cards Kids Cards
Wanna Be Inspired
This Project was developed by the City of Wanneroo (WA). The main purpose of this Project was to initiate an ABCDE project that – identified and connected local residents who were interested in sharing their ideas for their community, inspired and supported residents who wanted to initiate neighbourhood projects and provided avenues for residents to share with Council staff how they can best be supported in making their vision for their community a reality. Below is a set of tools / products used by the City of Wanneroo including a PowerPoint presentation with an animation that explains and demystifies the concept to residents.Wanna Be Inspired PowerPoint Presentation By the Council
