Welcome to this survey

We are broadly casting the net to gain feedback about the Inner East of Melbourne. This will assist community and government partners motivated to co-create an Aboriginal hub in the Inner East. This hub may provide services, deliver programs, offer cultural immersion for both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal participants and contribute to the activation of entrepreneurialism and innovation. The Inner East is defined as the local government areas of Boroondara, Manningham, Monash and Whitehorse. There are four sections and a final prompt for you to offer anything that you feel is on topic but hasn't been asked - 18 questions in total. The information harvested will be available on the alalouie website by mid 2021, so hope you can check back to see what you've been a part of. The survey is open from 13 March to 25 April 2021. Thank you for taking the time and we welcome you sharing the survey with others. Please contact admin@alalouie.org if you have further reflections or any questions.
