Town Teams Take Kalamunda

The Town Team movement is taking communities by storm and it’s about to hit the City of Kalamunda. Town Teams are organisations made by community, driven by community, for
community, who bring town centres to life through placemaking and event initiation. Town Teams work closely with local governments to achieve their vision.

The City has confirmed its support of the Town Team movement and is hosting a series of community pop-ups throughout March to aid the community in the set up of Kalamunda and Forrestfield Town Teams.
