The project will involve 10 local artists organised by The Laneway Collective. It will transform a boring old brick wall beside Psychology Australia (on Grosvenor Road behind the Flying Scotsman) in to an outdoor street art gallery.
The City of Vincent will contribute $2,500 if the community can match it and contribute another $2,500. If the community doesn’t raise the cash, the project will not happen. So we need your help!
Here is what the wall looks like now –

The Beaufort Street Network is working with the City of Vincent to name twelve currently unnamed laneways around Beaufort Street (see map below).
These laneways have been here for decades. But they have never had official names. Naming the laneways is will help create a ‘sense of place’ and future laneway activations.
This a is a great community project and everyone is welcome to get involved. We’re looking for clever names that resonate with the area and its community – but there are some rules to follow (boring, but important if you want your suggestion taken seriously).

Submissions are due by 20 November.
