What's on at Homebase

Free events and workshops to inspire you, connect you to fellow changemakers and help you initiate the change you want to see.

An innovation incubator

In 2021 Griffith University and City of Logan partnered to bring Homebase to life. Our aim was to stimulate creativity and community connection in the Logan region. To cultivate local pride and spark ideas for community participation in better futures. To grow inclusive and impact-led organisations that reflect the diversity of Logan.  

We wanted to create a place where you could learn and grow and explore new ways to create positive impact, no matter who you were.

We did this through a three-tiered program. Click through to see what we learned along the way.  


Workshops, events and learning opportunities for anyone interested in making lasting change in themselves, their community or the world.

What Did We Learn

While funding for this particular program has ended, we want the resources we created and things we learned to be easily accessible and useful to the Logan community and beyond. Our aim is to spark creativity, build capability and ‘biodegrade’ out of the picture so initiatives are led by communities.

We learned many things throughout the program and are preparing a case study on the Cultivate program.

At a program level we learned:

Time is just as valuable as money. We cultivated some wonderful relationships during the program. But we needed even more. More time for building deeper relationships and trust with more community groups, and for growing capability after initial events. We need to factor this in to planning.

Funding for outcomes needs to be flexible. Every program starts with hypotheses. Once we’ve tested our hypotheses we need the flexibility to pivot programs to more successfully contribute to intended outcomes.

Cultivating cultural literacy and safety are imporant. When participants felt they were in a safe place where they could see others like them, their engagement improved. And by celebrating diversity in the room we were able to share multicultural ways learning and doing business.
