Smith Street Dreaming is an Aboriginal Live Music Event that will be held on the corner of Stanley and Smith Streets in Collingwood on 27 July 2013.

Kirsty Baird, Arts and Cultural Development Officer from the City of Yarra is coordinating the event in conjunction with Hieng Lim from the Neighbourhood Justice Centre and members of the Smith Street Working Group.

here studio is responsible for the streetscape design and will be working with Ngarra Murray and Dianne Harris to develop the look and feel of the event. Using recycled materials and working with local young people and the Yarra Men's Shed to construct various street elements, we aim to transform the street into a dreamscape for this exciting one-day event.

Initial concepts discussed with the Smith Street Working Group on 14 May included a total landscape made from recycled pallets, colourful overhead canopies, an 'entrance' and small intimate spaces.

Nicky Moffat from Urban Bush Carpenters has been working with Zulu, Suni and Abel and they have started to construct some of the elements for the streetscape. Next week we will be working closely with them and a builder to get the construction fully underway!

Michelle and Ammon are busy preparing screengrabs from the 3D model to assist with construction, and coordinating the stage canopy element with our friends at Circus Oz.

Kirsty and Bek are also working hard on the logistics including sourcing more pallets, sandbags, etc! and all other production aspects of the project.
