Southbank Community Events

Weds, 1st Nov, 7:00pm, Pedestrian Safety Information Session

Earlier this year, City of Melbourne (CoM) asked the community in Southbank to identify pedestrian and road safety issues they have experienced in the neighbourhood and possible improvements that could be made to improve safety. The consultation took place online through Participate Melbourne, and a total of 1160 comments were received from community members. 


The CoM used these community comments alongside historical community feedback, as well as crash stats, and vehicle speed and volume data to come up with a list of proposed pedestrian improvement projects for the neighbourhood. 


The City of Melbourne Transport Engineering team is now inviting community members to attend an information session where they will outline the proposed pedestrian improvement projects to be delivered in Southbank. Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and provide comments about the proposed projects and broader pedestrian safety issues in Southbank. 


Place: Assembly Hall, Boyd Community Hub, 207 City Rd

Catering: Light refreshments will be provided. 

How to register: Complete the form here at least 24 hours prior to the information session.

WHAT IS A TABLE READ? A table read is an organised reading of which a script in which the speaking parts, stage directions and scene headings are read out loud. They are an essential part of the script development and writing process, as writers use them as an opportunity to fine tune their stories, sharpen their dialogue, and make other necessary adjustments.

FOR WRITERS a table read can identify problem areas in a script.

FOR ACTORS a table read offers an opportunity to interpret a writer’s script and practice performance.  This event also provides an opportunity to network.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN ON THE DAY: Four (4) emerging writers will provide draft scripts on the day of the table read.   There will be up to 7 actors per writer.
