What does the west mean to you?
In a tribute to Gillian Wearing or maybe Bob Dylan – we’ve been doing our own “Signs that say what you want them to say, and not what someone else wants you to say” project. Long time Village Well collaborator David Naylor went to the western area of Melbourne (Footscray, Highpoint and Yarraville) and asked people “What does the west mean to you?”
We’ve been doing this research as a kind of informal engagement, and as a great immediate way for us to get an insight into what people care about, and how they think about their community and their place. It helps us to find commonalities and understand individual perspectives. We are going to keep doing this all around Australia – so stay tuned, we’ll post our photos here.
