The recent Myriad Festival funded by the State Government is the major innovation festival in the Southern Hemisphere and Samford Commons was there as an Innovation Hub and a Founding Partner of Innovate Moreton Bay. We were there to tell our social entrepreneurship story and to help other innovative organisations and businesses to build their networks while we built ours.
A number of people were interested in our STEAM Immersion Program and the emerging Wellbeing Immersion Program and Wellbeing Trail concept as well as the whole Samford Commons precinct.
In the aftermath of the Myriad Festival we were connected to the Okie Dokie Farming Project which engages with African-Australian people in South East Queensland. Their Strategic Advisor, Chelsea Baker, has asked to collaborate with the Commons on their project. Chelsea said “We are truly inspired by what you are doing on the whole Commons precinct.”
Who knows what may come from the myriad of connections and ideas?
