commissioned community development programs
We fuse together playful creative experiences, with community development approaches, purposeful and innovative ways of learning, sharing and building connections.
From showcasing the creative skills of seniors, to working with social housing tenants on an art exhibition; curating a zine with young people, to connecting with young adults with a disability: Rumpus can design projects and programs that work towards a greater purpose of capacity building, with purposeful play as the tool.
2018: In partnership with Illawarra Social Investment Trust and FACS, Rumpus worked with social housing tenants in Bellambi on a purposeful learning project with a focus on public art. A group of residents worked over summer to beautify these steps to the beach.
2016: We recruited, supported and engaged seniors to share their skills, with support from the IRT Foundation for our 'Pass it On Project'.
2015: In collaboration with Headspace Wollongong, we engaged a graphic designer, writer and marketing guru to work with young people on the creation of a zine.
2014: In partnership with the School for Social Entrepreneurs Australia, we co-delivered Social Change 101, an introductory course for emerging social entrepreneurs in Wollongong.
Our expertise brings purposeful programming into focus, to build stronger communities. Our team is highly experienced in community development practice, program design and facilitation, review and project analysis.
