About This Project

Welcome to the Social Collective.

How do we connect with other people in our community? How can we create a business that promotes real life connections in the community? Why did superman wear his underwear on the outside of his pants? Why are pants sometimes called trousers and pants are not always what they seem?!

We’ve been asking ourselves these and many, many other challenging questions for some time.

“Connecting people to events, and helping people move from online to offline. From the computer to the community.”

Our vision is to connect people. Through the creation of events, through promoting non profits and community groups, and through sharing community, cultural and educational events. We believe we can create a stronger community. We’re a group of individuals who believe collaboration is the future and working together as a collective, can achieve much more than the individual.

Sound intriguing? There’s much more to add and much more to come, but for now if you like what you hear, then like us online and let’s make things more social offline!

20percent-community-MemberOur goal is to bring in revenue, and give it back to the community.

Our principles are built on a social Enterprise model, locally owned and run, with a 100% focus on the community. “We believe in capital principles for a social purpose and sharing profit, not profit sharing”.

Our mission is to connect people with events. To connect organizations with the community and to move the people from the online, to the offline. From the computer to the community

Event listings for nonprofits, community groups, sport teams and clubs, free events, cultural and educational events and are free. Commercial events and event organsied ‘for profit’, are free while we are in Beta mode.

We use the latest technology so that organisations can share information, attract more attendees and strengthen the community.
