Bringing Yarra to life with The Art of Belonging

1 March 2017

Yarra Council is teaming with Artful Dodgers Studio (Jesuit Social Services) to transform the way young people connect with public spaces and their local communities.

The Art of Belonging is a creative place-making project supported by youth-led grants and training opportunities.

Participants will identify what makes our community spaces special and work to embed art and culture within our everyday environments.

This will be achieved through place-making activities such as local festivals, pop-up projects, co-design sessions and more.

Young people will participate in all aspects of production, from selecting the right project through to design and delivery.

The program will kick off with the first of four orientation and co-design workshops at 4pm on Tuesday 7 March.

The art of belonging has received funding for 12 months through VicHealth’s Bright Futures for Young Victorians Challenge.

Young people interested in participating or learning more can contact:
