Waterfront urban renewal projects often promise to open up waterways and reconnect cities with their rivers and harbours, but this doesn’t always translate into reality. Join us as we follow Janet Bolitho – urbanist, storyteller and Fishermans Bend Development Board member – from Jane’s Walk around Fishermans Bend. You’ll be invited to contemplate the past and future changes to Melbourne’s next major urban renewal precinct and what this might mean for the ongoing story of Melbourne’s waterfront access.
Jane’s Walk is an international citizen-led walking conversation inspired by urbanist Jane Jacobs. Jane’s Walks encourage people to share stories about places, discover unseen aspects of their communities, and use walking as a way to connect.
