As a collaborative group of organisations, G21 together with key partners including Humans in Geelong, Barwon Health, Dementia Australia and local Councils, bring to you a STREETFACE storytelling project that shines a light on older members of our community that have experienced a ‘Life Transition’.
The project features nine stories from residents across the G21 region. They are people that bring insight and wisdom, guiding us through a journey of resilience and physical activity to enable self-empowerment and improved health and wellbeing.
Our goal is to inspire through story and real-life example. To demonstrate how ‘movement’ comes in all shapes and sizes and provides a wealth of benefits to our health and wellbeing, both physically and emotionally.
The large STREETFACE decals will be on display from July 1st at the following Greater Geelong locations:
- City Hall;
- Geelong West Town Hall;
- Bellarine Community Health, Portarlington;
- Civic Centre car park; and
- Grovedale Neighbourhood House.
STREETFACE decals will also be displayed in the Golden Plains Shire and in the Colac Otway Shire. We have also posted more about each person’s journey on humansingeelong
We would love to hear from you after you have visited the STREETFACE decals or read the stories. Please take our survey to tell us about your experience. https://yoursay.geelongaustralia.com.au/streetface
All feedback will help determine effective measures for future planning with the ‘Healthy Eating, Active Living’ priority for G21, specifically for people as they age.
