Northcity4 and Sustainability

We recently took the time to reflect on some of the sustainable & social projects Northcity4 has initiated or been involved in since we kicked off two and a half years ago. Looking back it surprised us how much great stuff has happened at NC4 in such a short time.

Anna Davern, our in house web guru, has created a brand new Sustainability webpage for the NC4 website with lots of great information about these projects – check it out here! We’d also like to take this opportunity to thank all the wonderful people we have had the opportunity to work with so far.

EMM – activity…

Following on from Roseanne Bartley’s presentation to the EMM group last year, a few folk from the Ethical Makers Movement decided to take a walk in the MCG gardens and participate in Roseanne’s exciting project Seeding the Cloud : A walking work in process. This project has been designed and lead by Roseanne Bartley and people are now seeding all over the country and around the world.

Suse Scholem, fired us up and the group meet at 1.15pm on Platform 1 Jolimont station.

We walked the perimeter of the park collecting, talking and enjoying the cool grey day.

We managed to collect a substantial amount of plastic loot and a few bags of rubbish to boot.

The plastic pieces were then laid out and curated on site into a neckpiece which is looking like the start of something special.

Due to storm clouds and time restraints this group has planned a second sitting to complete the assemblage of the piece.
