Myself and Kim Bridgland from the Renew Newcastle project were on By Design on Radio National this morning.

In a situation that may soon confront many Australian city centers, Newcastle has over a hundred vacant buildings in its two main streets. “Renew Newcastle” is an initiative to rejuvenate the centre of town, not by throwing millions of dollars at it, but by finding creative short- and medium- term uses for vacant shops and offices. This is allowing community groups and cultural projects to move in to otherwise wasted space.

You can listen to the interview here or download it here.

Oh, and if you want to check out what Renew Newcastle is up to check out the Projects Page at the Renew Newcastle web site. Complete with maps, profiles, and all sorts of crazy shenanigans!
