Let’s Melbourne Again

⁠Our first community project of the year is complete! Lily and Henry opened Theodore's just over a year ago. ⁠They bought responsibly sourced, local and seasonal food and drinks to the people of Brunswick and they always made us feel welcome.⁠

Like most of Melbourne’s hospitality, Covid hit them really hard.⁠ They didn’t give up, instead they transformed into Ted’s Grocer, providing that same fresh produce for local households. Now, in 2021, they’ve found a way to bring Theodore’s back to us. Breathe worked with them to create a place for outdoor dining and a place for people by activating the street.⁠

We would like to thank Taubmans who generously donated paint from their new Chromatic Joy collection to add colour to the space. We would like to thank Moreland City Council for working through the street closure with the local community.⁠We would like to thank BREC for illuminating Saxon Street with magical street lights.⁠

Lastly, we would like to thank the brilliant local community for supporting Theodore’s through the good times and the hard times, for having your buildings painted to create an immersive place and importantly, for coming together on a hot summers day to paint the street, to claim it back for everybody.⁠
