New Mural Project Needs Your Help

A new Mount Lawley mural project needs your help.

The project will involve 10 local artists organised by The Laneway Collective. It will transform a boring old brick wall beside Psychology Australia (on Grosvenor Road behind the Flying Scotsman) in to an outdoor street art gallery.

The City of Vincent will contribute $2,500 if the community can match it and contribute another $2,500. If the community doesn’t raise the cash, the project will not happen. So we need your help!

Here is what the wall looks like now –

Name the Lanes! Leave your mark on Beaufort Street!

WEBSITE_IMAGE

The Beaufort Street Network is working with the City of Vincent to name twelve currently unnamed laneways around Beaufort Street (see map below).

These laneways have been here for decades. But they have never had official names. Naming the laneways is will help create a ‘sense of place’ and future laneway activations.

This a is a great community project and everyone is welcome to get involved. We’re looking for clever names that resonate with the area and its community – but there are some rules to follow (boring, but important if you want your suggestion taken seriously).

What’s OK What’s Not OK
  • Short names with a maximum of six letters
  • Names which are easy to pronounce, spell and write
  • Surnames of local or notable people who have contributed to the local community or place (no longer living)
  • Names based on historical events
  • Names based on recognisable or special features (e.g. Astor Lane is already on use north of Walcott Street)
  • Names relevant to the local community and/or the area
  • Names of living people
  • First names
  • Names starting with “The”
  • Double-barrelled names (e.g. two names joined with a hyphen)
  • Numbers or roman numerals
  • Symbols or logograms
  • Possessive apostrophes and diacritical marks (e.g. Bob’s or Café Lane)
  • Inappropriate, discriminatory or derogatory names
  • Duplicating names already in use in the area (e.g. “Barlee”)
  • Names longer than six letters

Find out more and make your submission on the City’s of Vincent’s website – http://www.vincent.wa.gov.au/namethelanes

Submissions are due by 20 November.

It’s Dogtober on Beaufort Street!

Dogtober

Dry July, Liptember, Movember and now our very own Dogtober on Beaufort Street!

Your local community group, the Beaufort Street Network, are running their monthly market with a dog theme on Sunday October 4 from 9am to 1pm.

In recognition of all the wonderful dogs that frequent Beaufort Street, Chair Pam Herron says it was time that we provided a special market where owners could bring their pooches along to enjoy a Sunday morning out with the family.

There will be treats galore, a doggie photographer and even a mobile dog wash, (after all who wants to pat a dirty pooch?)

Rotaract will be raising funds for charity with their sausage sizzle. A raffle and some very special prizes will be up for grabs on the day. Yes, you can dress Chewie up for the occasion Mayor Carey!

Celebrity dogs are invited, committee member Danielle Van Kampen will be bringing George and Mildred down and we might even get to see some local stars like Grover, Riley, Jeffrey or Lola all vying for best looking dog.

Located in the Barlee Street Carpark, this is a wonderful place to hang out, listen to music, buy some wares, have a coffee or grab a selection of food provided by Beaufort street cafes.
