The Western suburbs of Melbourne have distinctive cultural, economic, and socio-political histories, weaved from successive waves of migration. These histories are continually transformed through various processes related to globalisation, migration, and dynamics of community and place making. Often celebrated for its cultural diversity, the location is also marked by high levels of inequality that are exacerbated by processes of de-industrialisation, urban renewal and gentrification. We are attendance to consequences for the health and wellbeing of differently positioned and its attendant consequences for the health and wellbeing for differently positioned communities of people. Within this context, with such complex and diverse social and cultural history, there can be found extraordinary examples of creativity, communality, survival and solidarity.
Footscray is known for its diverse and vibrant history this multicultural hub reflects and has been home to successive waves of migrants from Greeks, Italians, and former Yugoslavians, to Vietnamese and East Africans. Head down Barkly St for some of the best Pho and Bahn Mi in Melbourne, and finish it off with coffee and canoli, otherwise head down Nicholson St Mall to sample Ethiopian Injera bread or succulent kebab. Nestled on the Maribyrnong river is the Footscray Community Arts Centre, a community-engaged contemporary arts space that hosts theatre, galleries and workshops and contributes to Footscray reputation for a thriving local arts scene.
Visit one of Footscray’s many bars for a wine or a cocktail, see some live music at the Reverence Hotel or head to Hop Nation for a locally brewed beer. No visit is complete without a trip to the Footscray Market, where you can explore the fresh produce whilst sipping on Café Sua Da (Vietnamese Iced Coffee).
When thousands and even millions of people experience essentially identical problems, defining these problems as ‘individual’ oversimplifies to the point of absurdity
