This consultancy will advise the City of Melbourne on ways to capture and communicate the history and ‘stories’ associated with the city’s three major ‘cultural precincts’.
City of Melbourne
The work was undertaken in association with the Melbourne-based Reputation Group and included the Lygon Street precinct, the Lonsdale Street ‘Greek precinct’ and Chinatown. In 2009 researchers worked with renowned Melbourne writer Arnold Zable to undertake research on the history of the three precincts and to capture a host of stories which could be used to communicate the history and character of the three areas to a broad public audience.
The research has also involved a review of international literature and experience in regard to ‘cultural’ or ‘ethnic’ precincts and a paper on this was delivered to both the City of Melbourne and the Victorian Multicultural Commission (VMC).
