Kindness Project

Encouraging and celebrating acts of kindness in our community

The Kindness Project is a chance for everyone at RMIT Training to come together as a community, to connect and celebrate acts of kindness.  Join us by doing at least one act of kindness every day and sharing it on the wall below.

Go to our Kindness Wall below and share something kind… 

  • someone did for you 
  • you did for someone else 
  • you did for yourself 
  • from your childhood or past
  • video/story
  • in your neighbourhood or community
  • towards the planet
  • towards animals

There is no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.

Ziggy Illustration Gallery Now Open!

Congratulations to everyone who submitted work into the Ziggy Illustration Competition. The judging panel had a difficult task in choosing one winner so instead decided on a winner and runner up. Two out of the nineteen wonderful images will be printed onto a range of items including a tote bag, tea towel and coffee mug. We loved the different approaches and representations of Ziggy and felt that each of the works captured something of her kind and generous character. As ambassador of the kindness project and a much-loved member of RMIT Training, it is Ziggy’s role to provide companionship and gently watch over everybody's wellbeing. The two illustrations that were finally decided upon bring both inventiveness and tenderness and capture lovely aspects of Ziggy’s kind spirit.
