We are working with the community to create inclusive and welcoming spaces in Victoria Street.
We conducted a 3-hour night time lighting walk on 28 April 2021. The event brought together council, lighting specialists Arup, Victoria Police and a diverse group of participants of different cultures, age groups and walks of life.
During the event participants engaged in hands on activities to learn how lighting impacts perceptions of safety and explore different lighting sources including smart technologies.
Co-designing the lighting concept
The community’s insights are being used to inform the lighting concepts for the project area. This includes the use of warm and vibrant light, an emphasis on street art and interactive lighting installations, and a focus on creating welcoming spaces.
