Event Information

What makes the West a thriving and vibrant community to be a part of?
Our people of course! 

Located on the hoarding of the New Footscray Hospital site (Geelong Road, Federal Street end), Faces of Footscray is a photographic portrait series celebrating the people of the West. A community arts collaboration between Footscray Community Arts and Plenary Health – who are delivering the New Footscray Hospital Project in partnership with the Victorian Government and Western Health – each portrait links to a short film detailing their connection to place, culture and community.

Featuring the work of visual artists from the West, Mika Tran and Thuy Vy, the two creatives highlight the people that genuinely embody what makes the West special.

Why not come meet them for yourself!
