REZZA + VOIR - Revitalising Reservoir's Laneways

The REZZA + VOIR project is a celebration of Reservoir's diverse community. This public art project develops a participatory story wall that will explore connection to place in the community of Reservoir and a linking of the two laneways between Edwardes Street and Spring Street.

As part of the project, the two laneways will be temporarily named Rezza Boulevard and 'Voir Lane. Over the duration of the project, local artist Sarah Rudledge will develop different ‘chapters’ of the story wall with themes such as trade, gardening and sports.

The project kicked off with Chapter 1: Making it in Rezza - an exploration of running a small business in Reservoir or selling things that are made or crafted by hand locally. A big thank you to all those who have contributed to this chapter!

Chapter 2: Spring and Summer Gardens will be installed in November 2019. Keep an eye out for the colourful images going up in Rezza Boulevard and 'Voir Lane!

Project Background

This project is an action of the Reservoir Streetscape Masterplan 2014. The Masterplan identifies the Reservoir Retail Activity Centre’s existing network of laneways as the ‘forgotten spaces in between buildings’. The Masterplan recognises the opportunity to activate these laneways through changes to the public realm including restricting vehicular access to sections of the laneways, improving the laneways’ amenity, lighting and overall perception of safety through the introduction of public art. For more information, you can download a copy of the Reservoir Streetscape Masterplan and the Reservoir Identity Study from the Document Library section.

I'd love to run a pop up roller rink as part of the good sports chapter - see what we do here ( I live and work from Jeffrey St ) www.facebook.com/MaltShopRollers - participatory & interactive we'll get anyone on wheels who's game enough to try.
