Dayboro Alive is about Teamwork
Do you have an idea for events, entertainment plans or simply want help from people in Dayboro and surrounding areas?
You have no idea how to start it or how to go about it…. You are not alone. We do not make any promises we are here to help collect ideas, get it in-front of the greater Dayboro community and assist where we can.
The first impression you will have is …… “Oh NOOOO not another one”, true another one.
Dayboro Alive is a brainchild of some Dayborians, it has NO affiliation with any OTHER group or association in Dayboro and as such is not bias towards any group or organisation, and it will remain that way. It was set up out of necessity and concerns that Dayboro is slowly but steadily being transferred into another Brisbane Suburb.
Nothing wrong with that, really, along as we can keep a bit of rural, bit of the “old dayboro ” intact and promote the LOCAL DAYBORO BUSINESSES.
So many ideas, but they are never really captured or published, even worse might just be discarded without having a chance.
So let the crowd do their thing, and vote for ideas, list ideas and voice their thoughts.
What is Dayboro Alive about?
First it is not about taking over the world, let alone taking over or competing against existing community groups in Dayboro. The objective of our (I keep saying we and our but at the moment it is only one Dayboro Resident that is working on this.). Dayboro Alive tries to do the following:
- Capture the idea, it is either directly emailed or we grab it from Facebook sites.
- Contact the idea initiator, ideally this person or group becomes the driver behind all of it.
- Make the idea visible to the wider community, this is a double edged sword. I do believe thought that it is good to have everybody involved.
- Allow polls to be setup, so people can unanimously “vote”.
- Provide updates on the idea/project if needed a separate website can be setup like Dayboro Harvest or Dayboro Youth.
That list should give us a good start to get going :-).
Why have it?
Simply because there is currently NO central repository for ideas, suggestions, complaints, critique etc that is NON BIAS. Most organisations are volunteer (this initiative is no different) based and have either not the resources, capacity or willingness to deal with it. We (yes it is not only me) have a stake in either one or more business or organisation, in Dayboro so it is in our interest to make Dayboro the best it can be.
So who made you the “big kahuna”.
I did…. simply. I am a keyboard worrier, often accused of being one especially in the context of assuming all I do is writing a critique. That is ok, most if not all initiatives start with a keyboard as it is. BUT to be fair, it is true I could do more. So here it is an attempt to capture, develop, evolve and make it happen that is what Dayboro Alive tries to do.
