Launch of Community Art Project in Main Street Croydon

By June 22, 2010August 6th, 2010No Comments

This morning I was invited to launch mosaics that were created through a community art project in Main Street, Croydon. The mosaics were created by Swinburne VCAL students, through discussions with the Main Street Traders Committee and Maroondah City Council.

The community art project is an example of collaboration and partnership between various organisations, including students who worked closely with the traders to improve the amenity of Main Street. In addition, the project received a council grant of $1810, which was utilised to fund equipment, as well as a community artist to work with the students.

The Main Street Traders Committee is planning further community art projects to provide additional amenity improvements to Croydon’s Main Street, as well as delivering a unique identity to the shopping precinct.
