Brunswick Silo Mural
Our community is a place made up of many cultures and many faiths. It is rich because of its diverse history and community. It is a place that had its heart broken on the day of the Christchurch shootings.
The image of Jacinda hugging a muslim woman after the shootings has become a beacon of tolerance, love and peace in these divisive times. We want this message, this moment in time, remembered. We want to learn from it, we want it to hold us up, to strengthen us. We want everyone to know we are them, that they are us and, that we are, and always will be, stronger together.
Breathe Architecture worked with the local community to bring the renowned street artist, Loretta Lizzio to Melbourne to paint the Tinning street silos. The silos stand 75 feet tall and are a singular landmark on the Brunswick skyline. Loretta agreed to donate her time to paint an image of unity, an image of hope, and an image of peace on these massive silos.
Broken hearted but not broken.
