The CuriousWorks toolkit is, funnily enough, a CuriousWorks initiative.

In this toolkit we present our model for sustainably and effectively using new media in community. Our model has been developed through projects supported by Vodafone Australia Foundation, Country Arts WA, Myer Foundation, Cultural Development Network and Australia Council for the Arts.

It has been built in collaboration with many local government and community organisations in the wonderful communities of Liverpool, Western Sydney and across the Pilbara, remote North-Western Australia.

The toolkit's launch is made possible through the BHP Billiton Iron Ore – Legacy Project, presented by Country Arts WA in association with Curious Works and the Newman Community.
