Spreading some hope from isolation


It’s a really weird and difficult time. But it’s in times like these that we often see some of the best aspects of humanity shine through.

Around the world, kids (and adults) are putting colourful rainbows in their windows, to brighten the day of neighbours and passersby.

Let’s get Brunswick in on the act! My team has made some rainbow posters and animal masks available for you to print, colour in and pop in your window. Download your rainbow mask here. Or download the complete package here. 

The trend started in Italy and has made its way around the world. You might have already seen some around your streets.

I’d love to see more of these popping up around Brunswick to continue to spread joy.

I’ve made a poster that you can download, print, colour in and pop in your window. Download your rainbow here.

I know that it’s a really difficult time, and if you are staying positive, I salute you. If you are just taking it day by day, I feel you. And if you are really struggling, I’m here for you - my office is always here to help. Contact us here. We've also put together a blog with helpful links to services if you're struggling and wondering what help is on offer. 

A bit of colour in our windows may seem simple, but for me it has been a powerful reminder that we are all connected, and we will get through this together.

Bonus: Wildlife masks! If you have kids and (like me) are thrilled at any fun activities to keep them busy, I’ve also included a link to some cute native animal masks that can be coloured in and made at home with a bit of string or ribbon. Click here to download them too!

Why isn’t it fixed yet?

Making Sydney Road a more inviting place to ride a bike would improve north-south trips for people who already ride, and hopefully encourage more people to travel by bike.  I was recently asked about the work I’ve done on Sydney Rd, and where this issue was up to. This is...

Fixing Victoria's healthcare system

The pandemic showed us the cracks in our healthcare system. During January the health crisis dominated the news, with daily reports of a hospital system barely able to cope with an influx of people struggling to breathe as COVID attacked their lungs. No part of our health system was spared...
