# 1322 The Settlement

Redfern is a diverse inner-city suburb of Sydney, renowned for its strong Aboriginal community.  ‘The Block’ has been a hub of political activism with a vibrant community spirit, but in the last decade Redfern has seen huge changes because of it’s proximity to the city centre.  Housing prices have sky-rocketed and it seems like every week there is a new trendy cafe, restaurant or bar opening.  A lot of people have welcomed these changes but there are others who worry that the spirit of the old community is being lost.

‘The Settlement’, an old community building in the middle of Redfern, became the battleground for a neighbourhood dispute between the old and new.

This show was produced as part of Stories by Postcode, a local story telling initative run by All the Best, devised by Jesse Cox, and made possible with a grant from City of Sydney’s Local Community Grants program.

#1321 Pot of Gold

What would you do if you won $12,000 on Deal or No Deal? All the Best presents the story of one man who spent his gameshow winnings on the purchase of camels, in order to find a rather metaphysical Pot of Gold: a bit of adventure in his life. Armed with three friends, three camels and not much preparation, Nathan Carter set off walking from Perth to Melbourne across the desert— and found much more than he’d bargained for.
