How Does It Work for You?

Experience Local Culture and Sights at Your Own Pace

QR codes make for great storytelling opportunities. Imagine this for a moment. You are walking through the street of Hobsons Bay. You stumble upon an interesting site, but you cannot figure out what it is or the history behind it. That’s where QR codes come in.

Making It Happen

Louis Joel Arts & Community Centre - Hobsons Bay City Council

This platform is a community arts project created by Gina Kennedy, built for and owned by the Hobsons Bay community.

None of this would be possible without the support of the Hobsons Bay City Council through its Make it Happen Grant program.

As an Arts & Community Centre, it’s our mission to curate this platform in the name of connectivity and to offer others a place to share their local stories. Thank you to everyone who made it happen so that we can help make community, art and expression happen for others.
