Event Details

NOW OPEN! Come and tag your town!

Both a personal journey and a public pin board, “Losing Footscray: tag your town”, is an invitation to tag a big map of Footscray with a luggage label to acknowledge places where change or loss or joy has made its mark on your heart.

Heather Horrocks, reluctantly now a former resident of Footscray, will tag two houses, the Town Hall, art spaces and the ANA clock – because a) she still loves the houses she lived in on both sides of the railway line, b) she was briefly, years ago, Mrs Footscray Mayor, c) she says she found her tribe – and became an artist – in Footscray, and d) she covered –and shamed – the ANA clock in Footscray’s CBD with crocheted and sewn fabric for One Night in Footscray last year.


(Monday) 9:00 am - 5:00 am
