NEIGHBOURS weaves unkept yard and well-swept garden, high-rise buildings and half-renovated homes, manicured hedge and unruly herbs.
Join us on a guided walk along Nicholson Street, through public spaces and into the homes of residents. Footscray locals perform accounts of their lives, daily rituals and personal histories against a backdrop of change: arrivals, departures, property developments, gentrification and progress.
Dwell for a moment as we collectively celebrate and document the dichotomies of our suburb in its present glory.
