The 4-year-long Section 76 Watson campaign was captured in our documentary. We hoped to convey the spirit of community that developed as a result of coming together to take action.
What a fun day out with the community, while learning about the local ecology and participating in the conversations about important community issues!
“THIS is how consultation should be run, with clear diagrams, models and information, out on a sunny weekend with lots of the community around, and young people involved in these issues!” This sentiment was shared by many passers-by who engaged with the Living Streets Youth at the Community Consultations held at Watson shops over 2 weekends of the April school holidays.
Residents who have lived in Watson for the past decade will know that block 74 (next to Solstice) is where you can stop by and say 'Hi' to the cows grazing along the fence, and block 76 (next to YWAM) used to be where you could spot tens of Kangaroos lazing around.
The epidemic is spreading again, suspending work, classes, and businesses. The lockdown forces us to stop everything, but the earth has still been rotating and the days have not stopped. Time has passed by, but life has not been suspended. The earth is purifying itself in change, are we also reborn along with this transformation?
Watsoners who have been in this suburb long enough will know that many of the parks have gone through wonderful transformations. One of these parks is the Mary Kitson Park in Majura Rise, and it is all thanks to a group of silent contributors who give by example, inspiring many others to also care for the communal space.
Kirily Martin | January 2021 Another successful holiday program completed! Thanks to the Living Streets Youth for putting on such an amazing program this year. From cooking, to meditation, we did loads of fun things.
