Drewery Lane Project

“The things you do for yourself are gone when you are gone, but the things you do for others remain as your legacy.” – Kalu Ndukwe Kalu


Drewery Lane is in the Melbourne CBD and is home to Legacy House. This charitable organisation is committed to caring for families of people who have lost their life to defend the nation for more than 95 years now.. On the back facade of the building, you will see mosaic tiles with the theme of Legacy. There are more than a thousand tiles on dusplay for the public to appreciate and enjoy.

Back story is, a skilled mosaic artist, tiler and teacher, Sankar Nadeson, has worked with schools to teach people how to make ceramic tiles. Most of these tiles were made by kids with ties to the defence force.

This is for the collaborative challenge which started this week from Marsha Ingrao and Cee Neuner where they will take turns every Friday to explore art in public places. It is entitled Photographing Public Art Challenge or PPAC
