Humans in Geelong Book Launch.

This brightly-coloured aircraft hangar at Armstrong Mount Duneed is coming to life early in September when we hold our Humans in Geelong Book Launch there. It’ll be showcased to and warmed by hundreds of the changemakers in our community at this exciting event. Entertainment on the night will be provided by Kim Cooper. We’ll hear from The Mayor of Geelong and Ange Liston-Mccaughley of The Type1 Foundation. Villawood Properties are proud to offer this space free of charge to community groups like ours.

“It can work as a regular meeting place for groups looking for a home, as a pop-up venue for meetings, exhibitions, installations, Book Launches – all sorts of things. We’re not using The Hangar at the moment and we’d love to see it being utilised by the community,” offers Rory Costelloe, Executive Director of Villawood.

“Villawood is always conscious of community groups and their needs, especially smaller, fledging groups in new areas like Armstrong.”

The Humans in Geelong Book has been produced thanks to the State Government Grant ‘Pick My Project’ and will go free to schools, libraries and community groups injecting hope and positivity into our region. We’d like to thank our auspice, Geelong Sustainability and thank Rory for the use of this funky space. Also, thanks to all our supporters who voted for the book and follow our page. Community groups are entitled to a free book that can be picked up at the Launch or our free Humans in Geelong Expo Sunday 6th Oct at Deakin Waterfront 10-3pm.

The hangar is located at the corner of Surf Coast Highway and Unity Drive. The former Geelong Airport hangar was converted by Villawood to a land sales office in recent years but has been superseded by an adjoining sales centre. Email if you’d like to find out more about The Hangar.
