CBD Activation

CBD Activation

Vibrant Kempsey CBD laneway

Did you know there are currently 31 empty shops in the Kempsey CBD area?

Let’s put our minds together and turn this around.

Join us for a community conversation about getting the CBD activated focusing on the key questions:

  1. How can we fill our empty shops?
  2. How can we activate an entrepreneurial culture in our community?

Whether you are currently running a shop in Kempsey, have an idea for a retail business or have an active interest in your CBD we’d like to hear your input.

Community Conversation Wednesday 28 February 530pm-730pm
Macleay Country University Centre, Kempsey Central


Join us for a light supper and conversation about CBD activation led by Ready Communities Co-Founder Dr Chad Renando.

The event will feature guest speaker Andrew Duck, Commercial Agent from Elders Lifestyle Group and will be followed by a short workshop and then CBD walk through and ideas session.

Registrations are appreciated for catering. Here
