Footscray Tales Trail: In Our Backyard

Footscray Tales Trail is a walking tour which will explore Footscray’s rich culture through conversation, performance and prose.

Presented with Victoria University in association with Footscray Community Arts Centre

Hosted by Victoria University in its centenary year, this panel will reflect on what changes have occurred in Footscray in the 100 years since VU first opened its doors as Footscray Technical School. Bringing together artists and creative minds working in the area today, this lively discussion will ask what changes have occurred, what changes are occurring and what is the role of artists and the arts in ensuring the voices of the communities that call Footscray home are heard into the future?

With: Michael Hyde, Hop Dac, Marcia Ferguson, Bigoa Chuol and Heather Horrocks
