Melbournes laneways have been transformed from narrow functional alleys to dynamic cultural spaces. This evolution is the result of a cultural awakening among the Melbournes creative entrepreneurs. Rather then working to block projects and control development, the city worked with private interests and artists to encourage the laneways progress. Trails of the City looks at the creation of the laneways from various perspectives; it illustrates how diverse groups aligned organically to generate these vibrant and eclectic spaces.
Background: In October 2009 delegates from across Canada and beyond joined Artscape in Toronto for our third Creative Places + Spaces: The Collaborative City conference.
