Common Thread

Get inspired, make connections and learn about all things sustainability at Common Thread, a regular event for our community.

Bringing together sustainability, the arts, and practical do-it-yourself know-how, Common Thread will connect people who share a common interest in living lightly.

Common Thread is guided by the people who take part in it. Expect workshops, networking and ideas sharing.

During COVID we have provided online opportunities for learning about sustainability. Until the end of 2020, Common Thread will be held at Marion Cultural Centre with a limited live audience and it will also be live streamed on Facebook.

To get involved in planning or contributing to future Common Thread events please contact us on 8375 6840 or via email.
