Perceptions of Geelong

  • Facebook
  • piering into the future
  • Geetroit

The Creative Geelong Facebook page was established initially as a reaction to negativity surrounding Geelong's future in the wake of Ford and Alcoa announcing job losses.

While Geelong has been transitioning from a manufacturing economy for decades, the perception that Geelong's economy was suffering belied the incredible creativity and innovation occurring daily in our laneways, cafes and businesses. As the Facebook page has grown in popularity, the need to more deeply engage with the community regarding the opportunities for growth in creative industries has become pronounced.

Creating a forum for collaboration, innovation and inspiration is a key, ongoing project for Creative Geelong.
