Glenroy Pathways project is temporary public art created by young people in the streets of Glenroy.
Glenroy Pathways is an innovative collaboration between artists, young people, the community, local businesses and Moreland City Council.
Glenroy Pathways is a project designed to engage young people in a temporary public art process that seeks to map unique sites of rare beauty and urban interest in the centre of Glenroy.
We want to provide an opportunity for young people to become more intimately involved in their urban landscape and generate ideas for creative interventions and events in and around their suburb. We want to create something unique to Glenroy.
Bejewelling The Palace
Belair Avenue public toilet was transformed by artists Ria Green and Alicia Bryson Haynes with a lot of help from the young people of Glenroy.
Keep an eye out for stage two in 2016/17.
Glenroy children flying the flag
Flags designed by children from the Itiki Sports Group Glenroy are installed on the flag poles dotted throughout central Glenroy.
Local kids working with Glenroy Pathways lead artists, Alicia Bryson Haynes and Ria Green, used shapes and symbols to evoke the various pathways and locations in their suburb.
These flags are unique to Glenroy and provide a colourful visual celebration of Glenroy’s diverse communities.
Transforming the tunnel
Throughout July and August 2015 the creative team have initiated workshops with young people in Glenroy - generating interest and ideas for the project.
On Saturday 19 September 2015, the team initiated a series of interventions at the Glenroy train station underpass, using the opportunity to engage with the broader community while they were decorating the steps, tunnel and garden.
The area of focus is central Glenroy from Belair Avenue in the west to Marlborough Street in the east, via the Glenroy train station precinct.
Project artists Alica Bryson Haynes and Ria Green have been working with young people from Glenroy on a series of pop up events throughout the precinct.
