The word “Dandy” has been taken from one of the southeast suburb of Melbourne called Dandenong (Dandenong is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 35 km (22 mi) south-east of Melbourne’s Central Business District) which has been identified as one of the most multicultural suburb in Melbourne
I chanced on this small inviting open space which had six towering ceramic totem poles of varying colours, designs and heights on one side and a beautiful mural on the other.
The Totem poles were created under the direction of Robert Tickner and the Knox Placemakers, a collaborative process involving local people of a variety of backgrounds, ages and interests.As you look closely you will see the Koori pole, Youth pole, Peace and Hope pole, Vietnamese pole, Music and Dance pole and the Four Elements pole.
This mural by Lee Pereira and Goodie is located outside the Walker Street Gallery and Arts Centre, Dandenong. They have created a calming and aesthetic piece that explores the themes of gender expression and sexuality in their mural entitled The Home of Earthly Delights.
