Another of our valuable service offerings is our consultancy work. Human has over 22 years of experience in running community engagement projects and we have partnered with an array of not-for-profit, government and corporate clients to help them achieve their creative and community goals.
We specialise in a number of different methodologies, which are tailored to meet our clients needs and expected outcomes. This includes helping our clients to develop the scope of their project, reporting and evaluation, facilitating project delivery, working closely with participants and working with clients to assist with implementing the recommendations from final reports.
In April - June of 2017, Human worked closely with Inala Youth Service (IYS) delivering the Our Hood creative project. In collaboration with IYS, we ran a series of workshops with a group of young people to brainstorm, write and record a song. The workshops gave the young people an opportunity to produce their own music video called Our Hood, filmed in various locations throughout Inala.
The video was well received with over 40,000 views, 400 shares and over 400 comments on the Inala Youth Service Facebook page. It was fantastic to see the community get behind their young people to support their positive creative outputs.

2016-17 CONSULTANCY PROJECT HIGHLIGHTS
One Million Stars to End Violence
In 2016 Human was contracted by the Queensland Government to deliver the One Million Stars to End Violence project - a peaceful global weaving project that engaged communities in a conversation about ending all forms of violence. The outcome was to launch a large public art installation of one million community-made, hand woven stars at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.
Human managed the engagement of over 200 communities from around the world in their star weaving efforts, guiding their progress and supporting them to meet the project goals of the Office of the Commonwealth Games and the aspirations of artist Maryann Talia Pau.
In 2017 Human conducted a consultancy project for Lend Lease to inform the design and development of youth programming and infrastructure in the Yarrabilba community as well as preventing misbehaviour by responding to young people's needs. We used a peer research, youth engagement and consultation framework to work with local young people, gather data and form the Yarrabilba Youth Council. Our report presented findings and recommendations for the Yarrabilba Youth Council and now young people are working collaboratively with the developers and local community organisations.
