Hosted by Lorna Hannan and a band of locals, hear each other’s stories, quiz experts in vaccination and immunology, play games that throw up new ideas, find out which community members help us through times of stress, and search out ways to strengthen what we do best in North Melbourne. A rolling three days of conversation and information over a cup of tea, named after local humanitarian and environmentalist, Ruth Crow am (1916–99) – who showed us that when we talk things through over a cuppa, great things happen.
Supported by – Ruth Crow Corner has been developed using Emergency Management Victoria’s Community Based Emergency Management approach, with members of the local North Melbourne community who have been involved in earlier iterations of Refuge; and is supported by the City of Melbourne through Arts House.
