In early 2020, a series of placemaking residencies will be held in Footscray's Maddern Square.
The team at Counterweight Vinyl are taking on the residency from February to March. They're no stranger to activating Maddern Square with their own brand of audio and visual fun. They put on a fantastic show as part of last year's One Night in Footscray and have established themselves as great community allies collaborating with many different local artists.
Their residency over the next couple of months will bring sensory delight to central Footscray with events that celebrate diversity, sustainability, equality and local pride. This will include DJs, spoken word performances, craft markets, hip hop dancers, a fashion parade and more.
The Maddern Square Placemaking Residency program is proudly supported by Victoria University as part of the Footscray University Town initiative.
