Carolyn is a local community organiser in Salisbury, in Brisbane’s south. Through COVID-19, she has focused on enabling community connection despite physical distancing – as well as taking the opportunity to connect with her family!

Her current project is Driveway Dinners – connecting neighbours through a physically distanced dinner in their own driveways.

As we ease out of COVID-19 restrictions, Carolyn’s vision is a world where we can break down barriers between people. We come from many different places, and we all have different stories, but we are all human beings. We share this world and together we can make it something wonderful.

Culture of Connection invites communities and organisations across Australia to record and share with us your unique experiences, your stories, your creativity and your messages of hope and resilience through these extraordinary circumstances.

Over the last 10 weeks, our Culture of Connection campaign has been sharing your stories to help keep our communities connected through Coronavirus restrictions.

These stories have highlighted the resilience of our communities and the innovation of individuals and organisations in supporting their communities through this crisis.
