Event Details

What are your dreams and desires for Melbourne? How can your stories of the city help map its future?

Taking over a 20-metre wall in the central city, DISRUPT is a storytelling project and exhibition to map the stories of our city. Contribute to this living and growing artwork through a series of map-making workshops. See the story map unfold with the contribution of story litter, an archive of discarded receipts and lists found on our streets by STREAT, a social enterprise dedicated to helping homeless and disadvantaged young people. Be a part of this collective storytelling project and disrupt the streets with your dreams of the city.

Carbon neutral contribution

Melbourne Knowledge Week is committed to reducing its impact on the environment and will be certified carbon neutral for 2019.

This means we will measure the festival’s carbon emissions and implement actions to reduce them. Then we will purchase offsets on your behalf to cover the remaining emissions and achieve carbon neutrality.

Your contribution will go towards a range of offset projects including a reforestation project in NSW and a project which enables Aboriginal communities to reduce emissions through improved land management practices in the Kimberley.

Take action on climate change, act now.
