Second Community Painting Event at Vogel Street Alleyway a Success
On 14 July, families from the Richmond community gathered in the alleyway between Evelyn Couzins Avenue and Vogel Street for a second time to brighten the corrugated iron fence with a garden scene. This event was run by We are Richmond. Children of all ages and their families took to the brush to paint butterflies, bees, lady birds, dragonflies, and other garden creations. They also added trees and a long strip of grass along the bottom.
It was a beautiful, sunny winter’s afternoon, and a great chance for members of the community to gather together and strengthen the mural started a few months earlier in May.
There will be another painting session in the future to complete the mural, by filling in spaces, painting the boards along the top, and adding detail to the grass.
We are Richmond (RRBA–Richmond Residents and Business Association) runs events like this to bring the community together to get to know each other, and also to beautify the suburb, and create spaces residents are happy to spend time in. If you know of an area that would benefit from beautifying, or needs some attention, please get in touch with We are Richmond.
A huge thank you to CCC Graffiti Team, who kindly donated the materials needed to make the mural painting a success! Paint, brushes, gloves, aprons, drop cloths, and buckets.
