Geraldton City Centre Revitalisation Plan - Community Conversation

  • CityHive, 184 Marine Terrace, Geraldton

The City of Greater Geraldton Council has recently released a document outlining their Local Planning Policy for our Geraldton City Centre (CBD) Revitalisation. This document was developed in consultation with the community as part of the Growing Greater Geraldton Growth Plan process. The document is currently in draft and will go ahead if there are no submissions received by the closing date. The document provides the initial concepts and is the stepping stone for the development of key actions to revitalisation Geraldton’s CBD.

The Event:

Pollinators and Progress Mid West are collaborating to host a one-off event, inviting all members of the community to come together for a conversation about the identified actions of the City Centre Revitalisation Plan. This is a great opportunity to have your say! We value your input and would greatly appreciate as much contribution as possible to highlight the priorities and possible missed opportunities.

The Revitalisation Plan can be found at this link: http://bit.ly/GCCRevPlan. It is necessary to have read this document prior to the event in order to comment on the gaps, the issues and the ideas that have a need for conversation. Think; who are we as a community, and where do we want to be? How can we as a City move forward?

Baulkham Hills African Ladies Troupe

  • Orana Cinemas Geraldton

THE BAULKHAM HILLS AFRICAN LADIES TROUPE is a celebration of the remarkable spirits of four African women survivors of sexual abuse, and the triumph of their improbable theatre troupe.
Four women fled from different parts of Africa to Australia in order to escape violence and abuse. They find a safe haven in Australia, but still they hold their pain silently within them. Until they decide to join a theatre group… and speak out. Under the nurturing guidance of theatre director Ros Horin, they collaborate to let their life stories be transformed into an extraordinary and joyously uplifting theatrical experience. This film charts their personal journeys from trauma to healing and public triumphs, as the Troupe’s show moves from a stage in western Sydney out to the world.
