About Us

It all started when...

In 2013 Traralgon Neighbourhood Learning House wanted to help fill an identified need for more activity and learning experiences that were 'hands on' and practical. 

We crowdfunded and successfully raised $35,000 to repair the roof of the old VRI hall in Traralgon. We successfully negotiated a 12 year lease. We partnered with Reactivate Latrobe Valley to help with the retrofit and process.  We consulted the community and made a plan. 

We've been building together ever since.....

 

This clip was the result of the community consultation that took place after our crowdfunding.

The VRI Hall is an exciting opportunity for the Traralgon Neighbourhood Learning House, not just in providing a space for classes to take place, but also reclaiming redundant infrastructure and transforming it into an effective learning environment that meets the particular, ad-hoc and flexible requirements for the Learning House classes; tinkering, recycling and making projects in an engaging, alive and imaginative setting.
