#Get Sunflowered project is a lesson in happy-making while exploring ways to address vacancy problems in the Latrobe Valley's rapidly changing regional economy.
Spaces across Latrobe City come to life when thousands of sunflowers bloom in summer. Each site will be transformed through a range of sunflower designs that will allow people to have different experiences, creating a happy and vibrant trail throughout our city.

The Future Morwell Project is your opportunity to identify priorities, describe and celebrate the qualities of the city, address issues in the urban fabric, and ensure that resources are strategically leveraged and deployed.
The intention is to create a shared vision and plan of action that is: aspirational where it should be, and practical where it must be, respectful of the city’s history, community efforts, and new ideas, just and equitable in seeking to create benefits for all, transparent and inclusive of all voices participating to improve Morwell.

The aim is to give the local community a creative hub to learn, explore, and share new skills, knowledge, and activities.
The VRI is a venue for the community to come together to connect, share and learn.
Get Cheffed is the food event of the year, bringing together the very best of Gippsland in a very tasty immersive experience. We plan to bring local food icons to the stage to battle it out for ultimate food supremacy.
