Douglas Parade Pedestrian Improvement
Project by Hobsons Bay
Hobsons Bay, Victoria
In 2017, Council received a community submission as part of the budget consultation process to improve pedestrian access across Douglas Parade, Newport. This project was included in the 2018-19 capital works budget. Council has undertaken pedestrian and traffic counts on Douglas Parade, between Yarra and Wilkins Streets. From this information, Council has developed draft concept plans detailing a number of options for the two main intersections within this precinct, including the types of calming treatments we would consider for each of the intersections within the precinct. You are invited to provide your thoughts and feedback on the proposed improvements.

Eliminating plastic at John Monash Science School
Project by Stephanie Karras
There's no excuse for single use! John Monash Science School (JMSS) has a vision to become single use plastic-free by 2020. We are a small ambassador team of passionate year 10 and 11 students who are working with Plastic Oceans Australasia to investigate the plastic habits of our school and generate innovative and effective ideas that we will put in place to become totally single use plastic-free. We want to do this to eliminate our contributions to the global plastic problem which is having and will continue to have devastating effects on all aspects of the environment. By making these changes we hope to inspire other schools around the country to join us on the journey to kick single use plastics out!
Project by Alon Trigger
Port Phillip, Victoria
Proposal: A Cantata to commemorate the 80th anniversary of Aboriginal leader William Cooper’s unique protest against “Kristallnacht.” What this project entails: The Cantata will involve a multi-disciplinary approach that will incorporate a chamber orchestra, chamber choir, two vocal soloists, enhanced staging and audio-visuals. The Cantata’s duration will be approximately 35 minutes. The significance and importance of this project: The 80th anniversary of “Kristallnacht” this year comes at a time when Holocaust survivors are rapidly diminishing, coupled with increasing concerns about current extremism, racial hatred and apathy. In this milieu, a hero like Aboriginal leader William Cooper serves as a role model for social justice, activism and “Tikkun Olam” (mending a broken world). The Cantata has both artistic and educational value, being highly relevant to a generation that has become increasingly detached and indifferent to the tragic events of the Holocaust. While the Cantata depicts the events leading to the Nazi Pogrom, the underlying message, personified by William Cooper, is that we should eschew apathy and live according to our convictions based on integrity and social justice. While the Cantata artistically describes the horrors of “Kristallnacht,” it concludes with a note of optimism in which William Cooper’s vision of basic human decency and social justice are held as values to strive for and acted upon in a turbulent world.
Paint the School in Colour
Project by Matthew Shawcross
Sacred Heart Primary School has a proud history of educating Fitzroy's culturally diverse community over many decades. The school has been planning to engage local art network, 'Juddy Roller' to complete 3 pieces of art to truly celebrate our school's commitment to migrant and refugee communities in Fitzroy. The front of the school is currently very plain and we want our children to be involved in collaborating, designing and painting alongside a professional artist in residence. The work will be showcased on two street-facing walls and pillars on our front building. The works will brighten up the school to show celebratory culturally diverse art on the Junior School wall on King William Street, the Pillars of the IT lab and the side wall on Young Street. As the school is at the heart of the local community, local residents will be able to stop and admire the artwork as they pass by and discuss with their children its significance. Sacred Heart children will be exposed to working with a professional artist and will always be proud of sharing their creation with their loved ones. Such a project builds wonderful community pride!
Melbourne CBD Rubbish walks
Project by Edmund Munday
Come meet some awesome new people, get some exercise, and help keep our streets clean! Rubbish walks is all about getting out and making a little difference in our community. Every weekend we meet up with the team, pick a neighbourhood, and go for a walk. Along the way we clean up any rubbish we find on the streets, keeping our community clean! This is a great opportunity to meet new people from your area, get some fresh air, and help improve your area! Each walk lasts for around an hour and starts mid-morning, we finish up at a local cafe for coffee and brunch (for those interested). Make sure you support my project to help me reach the 20 supporters I need to unlock all the tools provided by Tribus!
