# 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.

For as long as he can remember, Miles’s father has been trying to drag him out onto the water. Sailing, fishing, swimming… anything that meant getting out onto any beach, lake or river… well recently his dad started doing something different… and we thought it was the perfect thing to capture for our recording day….

Hear the results, including – stripping off in P.E. class, and we get our Tarot Cards read in the backseat of a car during a flashflood.  Produced by Jesse Cox and Miles Martignoni with the help of All the Best contributors and a bit of fate.
