Chiswick changes and connections
Currently Olev Muska (who worked on the North Strathfield Neighbourhood Stories) and Angela Pasqua are working on an exciting multimedia project focussed on Chiswick.
‘Chiswick Changes and Connections’ seeks to add vibrancy, create connections and establish a strong sense of belonging for the community living on the Chiswick Peninsula.
Olev and Angela are gathering local oral histories and impressions of living in Chiswick from both old and new residents. They will then prepare a set of short films to upload onto City of Canada Bay’s website. A selection of these will be projected at an outdoor event in October.
Come along to the community consultation this Saturday, 11 July, 10am to 2pm, outside Blackwall Café, Blackwall Point Road shops, and share your story of Chiswick with Olev and Angela. If you can’t make the consultation or you know of someone who may be interested, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
