PERFORMANCES - 2017
Change can be exciting, bringing fresh opportunities, but it can also be scary, especially when it could mean the relocation of your home or business. Turning Towers will explore the NSW Government plan to revitalise the inner city suburb of Waterloo and the issues facing the diverse community of Waterloo who have strong ties to the local area. What happens when an entire community of up to 4000 public housing tenants is 'redevelop'? How can we deal with the challenges ahead for those dependent on public and social housing while allowing for significant urban development? How can a community stay connected during a time of dramatic and rapid change?
When: Thursday 30 March, 6pm
Where: South Sydney Uniting Church
59a Raglan Street, Waterloo NSW 2017
PERFORMANCE TWO and Q&A:
