8-year old Travis has big plans: He wants to sell his toys and encourage other kids to do the same. TradeMe was one option but setting up a kids’ market in the local neighbourhood was an even better option according to Travis' mum Terri. With the support of the Green Bay Community House and the local community, Travis and Terri are putting together a community event from kids, for kids.
"We have approached our colleagues in Pt Chev and Sandringham Community Centres obtain advice and learn from their experiences with their kids markets for our event. It's a fantastic opportunity for us to collaborate with other community centres while supporting our locals in making their idea happen", says Anja Thomas, who works in Community Development at the Green Bay Community House.
The goal of the Kids Festival is for kids to be actively involved in organising and running their own stalls and activities in a supportive environment in their community. There will also be a pop-up café as a fundraiser for a local organisation.
