Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Friday next week from 4.00 pm to 7.00pm Rosa Street Goodwood comes to life and turns into Rocking Rosa Street, the first of a series of place making and place activation community events scheduled to take place in the City of Unley between now and April. Another first for the western side of the City.

Rocking Rosa Street aims to attract local families, casual shoppers and the early diners and cinema goers with live music, installation art and a resident writer asking questions about what makes a space ‘a place’ for us.
The Honey Pies and The Aves, fresh from their recent triple j unearthed success, will bring their distinctive style of rocking, popping, Indie and sometimes raunchy music.

All are invited to witness an art installation by visual artist Annalise Rees. Using recycled materials from Goodwood Road traders and assisted by Goodwood Primary School students, Annalise will create recycled cardboard city towers, resplendent with both real and imagined architectural and individual features to make up a large collaborative community installation.

Resident community writer Lilliana Rose will document the City of Unley’s program of

summer events with the Washing Line of Urban Dreams, a washing line upon which

people can peg their written ideas for the future of their city. Commenting on the people and activities around her as the afternoon unfolds, Lilliana will challenge our notions of place and space and question what makes our sense of place unique.

·         Footstomping, Fables & Film at Heywood Park on Saturday 16 March and


·         Beats and Breakfast in the Soldiers Memorial Gardens, 9, 16, 23, 30 March and 6 April
