Big Help Mob is a 100-strong rent-a-crowd of ordinary young guns like you. We get together to do superhuman acts of awesomeness for non-profits and communities in Perth.
One day it’s planting 10 000 trees in a few hours, the next it’s renovating a community centre or cleaning up a place that’s been forgotten and trashed. Nothing is too big for Big Help Mob and we’re not afraid to get our hands dirty… all 200 of them. Once the hands-on mission is accomplished with near-lightning speed, we celebrate with enormous, ridiculous flash mobs in public, using our superpowers to draw attention to good causes that need it.

Charles Landry helps cities transform their thinking so that they look at their potential imaginatively and can plan and act with originality. In 2007 he was part of the ‘Creative Capital Thinker in Residence’ programme in Perth. He produced a rather provocative document, which may be useful for those wishing to assess how a city’s psychology can be shifted in order to maximize its opportunities.
