Seaforth Piazza is a public space located in the heart of Seaforth that connects a beautiful, volunteer-run Balgowlah-Seaforth Library, Seaforth Village Community Centre and a café. It is visually, historically and geographically positioned to be a community hub, but was not well-known to the community and underutilised. Taking advantage of the lower level of the Piazza that is protected from vehicles, Small Shift worked with Seaforth and Balgowlah residents, schools and businesses to activate the area with family-friendly and inclusive DIO ideas. Three community members led a component of the project each: community chalkboard/mural; new plants and planters painted by local children; and giant games.
This project generated casual employment for a person with barriers to employment.
