Smith Street Dreaming

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

Here Studio was responsible for the streetscape design and build. Using recycled materials and working with local young people and the Yarra Men's Shed to construct various street elements, transformed the street for this exciting one-day event.

Nicky Moffat from Urban Bush Carpenters worked with Zulu, Suni and Abel to construct some of the elements for the streetscape. Our friends at Circus Oz provided the stage canopy element. Kirsty and Bek worked on the logistics including sourcing materials and all other production aspects of the project.
