Sylvie will take us on a tour of Footscray where we'll discover the local culture, history and food. The Ethiopian meal at the end of the walk will cost around $15.00. You may want to bring extra $$$s and a shopping bag :)
This is also the initial meeting for our resource mapping, with the aim to build a database of initiatives, enterprises and organisations in Footscray which may be interesting to collaborate with.
The purpose of our mapping activity is to weave a collaborative community between all these.
The Footscray Walking and Eating Tour represents the physical experience , while the Ushahidi crowdmap represents the virtual experience.
There is a car park at the back of National Trust listed 'Ercildoune' and it is about 3 minutes walk from Footscray Station. Ercildoune is owned by the Footscray Historical Society and their facility is downstairs. Upstairs is Effemmera which consists of art studios, a gallery and a film production company called Adventures in Genre. Sylvie's studio is at Effemmera.
More info TBC here soon....
