PROJECT: Block Party #1

What is a better use of empty urban spaces, abandoned lots, car parks and streets? A Block Party

B’day Block Party was a pop-up dinner that took place on 7th October 2012, in an empty lot at Ella and Chester Streets in Newstead. Across the city, sites like these which are flagged for development can often sit empty for months (or years).  How might these spaces be used in the interim to contribute to our neighbourhoods?
