These Are The People In Your Neighbourhood
These Are the People in Your Neighbourhood is a community edification performance led by children and fuelled by their curiosity about the world and enthusiasm to share it. It is a performance of a very possible world: a place where children walk down the street, tipping their hats to the people they pass and making it safe and familiar for everyone. If you harbour any nostalgia for those imaginary days when the word ‘community’ still had meaning, we invite you to come and experience a small slice of utopia.
There was fantastic generosity and good-will from all the people we visited: all excited to be sharing their lives with this community of students and the rest of the group that had come along for the journey.Jane Howard, No Plain Jane (2013)
…rather than talking to children about the dangers in their neighbourhood, the idea is to develop a sense of community and a sense of empowerment in children by getting to know the people they’ll see down the street.Come Out Festival Creative Producer Michael Hill, Adelaide Now (2013)
