Rocking Rosa Street: 22nd Feb
Rosa Street will be brought to life with Rocking Rosa Street, the first of a series of place
making and place activation community events scheduled to take place in the City of
Unley between now and April.
Rocking Rosa Street aims to attract local families, casual shoppers and the early diners
and cinema go-ers with live music, installation art and a resident writer asking questions
about what makes a space ‘a place’ for us.
The Honey Pies and The Aves, fresh from their recent triple j unearthed success, will
bring their distinctive style of rocking, popping, Indie and sometimes raunchy music.
All are invited to witness an art installation by visual artist Annalise Rees. Using recycled
materials from Goodwood Road traders and assisted by Goodwood Primary School
students, Annalise will create recycled cardboard city towers, resplendent with both real
and imagined architectural and individual features to make up a large collaborative
Resident community writer Lilliana Rose will document the City of Unley’s program of
summer events with the Washing Line of Urban Dreams, a washing line upon which
people can peg their written ideas for the future of their city. Commenting on the people
and activities around her as the afternoon unfolds, Lilliana will challenge our notions of
place and space and question what makes our sense of place unique.
