telstra transformation

As long as I’ve lived here, Telstra’s Northcote exchange has been a forgettable (and ugly) brown brick edifice. The best thing to happen to it was the occasional piece of street art, but the building looked horrible most of the time. Recently, this happened…

Part of Telstra’s arts program (in association with Darebin Council and Phantast), it features the work of local artists, Phantast (a non-profit arts group from Brisbane), Telstra area manager Paul Harrison, and Northcote Mayor Diana Asmar. The telecommunications company hopes to have 5000+ exchanges decorated in similar fashion Australia-wide.

The mural has been featured in the March 16 editions of both the Northcote Leader and the Melbourne Times Weekly.

Find the exchange at 156 High Street (Corner Bayview Street) Northcote.

I love good coffee, street art, tiki bars and kitsch. Adore roller derby and quiffs and vintage Hawaiian shirts. Enjoy a slice of my northside life!
