Our very very sweet and dear friend Shani in Fremantle, Western Australia – love ya, girl – talks about how she and her main man “Tell ’em he’s dreaming” Tim took their plain old suburban street and metamorphosed it into something much more and much bigger, step by step and neighbor by neighbor. And about how you can do that too. Shani’s quite brilliant at telling her story in just 20 minutes.
“How well do you know your neighbours? Suburban life is often isolating and rarely a true community experience. This is not the case in Hulbert Street. Shani Graham helped lead a revolution that ultimately resulted in strong neighbourly relationships, the fences pulled down, the establishment of a street festival and so much more. In this talk, she explains how it happened.”
