Pete Stone on Leverage

Selfie, 2020

I have learnt to always look for and never underestimate the good will in others. We all just want a chance to show it.

In each issue of our journal, we ask a handful of people to reflect on our chosen theme (and provide a selfie of themselves!). This is Pete Stone, Creative Producer at the City of Melville, on Leverage:

We all want to help if we can. We all want to be involved in a good idea, an exciting project. 

Over recent years I have produced some projects that were much bigger than me and the organisation I was working for. Projects like Perth Festival’s ‘Highway to Hell’ and the City of Fremantle’s ‘One Day in Fremantle’. 

Ambitious projects rely on collaborations to succeed. The organiser needs to leverage action by gathering support strategically to create an undeniable momentum when moving from one stakeholder to the next, and creating relationships with individuals working for reluctant but necessary collaboration partners.

A sense of belonging to a living collaboration and genuine attachment to a project beats all. Details can be worked out; attitudes need to be cared for.
