Enactus QUT #createwelcome

At the Southbank parklands, hundreds of people held scores of lanterns, illuminating the night sky at MDA’s Luminous Lantern Parade last Friday night – and Enactus QUT was among them.

At its 11th annual parade, Enactus QUT was invited to walk among leading organisations at the Luminous Lantern Parade to highlight the strength of Queensland’s cultural diversity, heritage, people, places, and history, while giving all Queenslanders the opportunity to say ‘welcome’ to our newest Australians.

QUTChangemakers

On May 10, Enactus QUT achieved an enormous milestone which was QUTChangemakers, QUT’s first social entrepreneurship competition by Enactus QUT.

As President of Enactus QUT, I sought to seek a new way in which Enactus QUT functioned – taking student engagement and retainment to a new level and to create a social-entrepreneurially-minded community within QUT. And last night we accomplished just that.

At the beginning of semester, we challenged students to be a QUTChangemaker through our program and competition by creating sustainable social enterprises that addressed issues we face within our own community. Unlike a regular startup weekend, this competition went for 10 weeks and sought to create direct impact by seeing ideas mature and become a reality.

Enactus presents Taste of Brisbane

On the 10th of October, Taste of Brisbane launched its first food tour of the semester at the delicious Afghani restaurant, Chopan Charcoal, located in Milton. Here, accompanied by 30+ guests, we were immersed in the owner’s culture and heritage while marvelling at the delicious morsels of food that continually filled our plates. At the price of $26 per person, the event proved to be great value for money as guests quickly became full with the steady flow of food making its way to our tables.

The Opportunity of a Lifetime at Start-up Weekend Brisbane – Creative Tech

From the 18th till the 20th of March, the Glasshouse at Kelvin Grove hosted Australia’s first creative tech start-up weekend. As participants pitched their initial ideas on the Friday, excitement was high in anticipation of the voting and team formations to take place later that evening.

I voted and became apart of the team for Shario – a platform for musicians to share, sell and trade musical equipment, providing a solution for musicians to gain access to otherwise extremely expensive equipment.
