Video: The Property Collectives model - March 2021 information session

This interactive information session was for people who are interested in potentially joining or creating a future Collective in Melbourne. Since 2010 we’ve created 9 collectives, building 60 homes using this joint venture model of citizen-led development.

In this 90 minute talk & Q&A session, held on March 23 2021, Tim Richardson and myself discuss:

  • our learnings from 10 years of managing citizen-led housing projects,
  • how the model works,
  • the key stages in a collective development process,
  • our experience in helping groups with site acquisition and securing development finance
  • the pros and cons of the model,
  • how you can initiate or participate in your own project

We are joined by fellow collaborator Andy Fergus in discussing our work on enabling larger projects and:

  • international case studies of citizen-led projects
  • how alternative development models can translate to local contexts in Australia
