Gillian has always been around if we needed anything done, Photo boards for markets and festivals, anything in the art field, helping with BBQ's and helping out in many different ways. We congratulate Gillian on receiving the award.

Another Community group that enjoyed Cityscape Murrumbeena 2019 was the Glen Eira Kindergarten Association (GEKA).
The ten kindergartens participated with all the children doing art work to decorate the window of THE HUB for the month prior to the 11th November.
The children did a wonderful job and all enjoyed bringing friends and family to observe their works in the window
The Glen Eira Historical Society was one of the groups involved in Cityscape this year
They had a display inside the Greenhaven `Funeral Parlor on the history of Murrumbeena as well as a stand in the street, with more recent items for display.
This was a popular display with many residents enjoying time looking and conversing with the Historical Staff members on duty on the day.
Cityscape Murrumbeen 2019 was our annual event when artists paint in the street for people to be able to see the process that happens for artwork to be produced.
Lots of businesses were involved in this event, with free coffees, vouchers and much more to encourage the artists to keep them involved.
There were lots of childrens activities, including facepainting, balloon man, pictures in a few cafes to be coloured in and Feed Freddie the Frog.
This Exhibition is based on the emotions that the sport "Aussie Rules" (Football) brings to so many people, those who watch, take part in the game, players, umpires, casual observers and footie tragics.
Come and see Footie at the Front, Girls in Football AFLW, Pride Cup, a tragic's living room, Racism and Reconciliation, are just some of the displays to be seen. Artistic people are being very generous and loaning us some wonderful works.

Dance is performance or participatory art expressed through the human body in motion. This Exhibition celebrates that art and the art which it inspires - music, choreography, designs for costumes and scenery and the depiction of dance and dancers through photography, sculpture, drawing and painting.
On a very windy, stormy day late last year, the fence containing about 300 tiles painted by member of the community, preschools, school, disabled, senior citizens and others was blown down.
On 15th May, Artists, Rotarians and a church member restored the artwork to its previous glory.

For the last few months we have had a "sausage artist" on duty at our Barbeques, twice a month.
The Barbeques are held at the rear of Woolworths in Glen Huntly Rd, Glen Huntly. The second and fourth Saturday of the month 9.30am to 1pm.
We have fun, raise money, collect new toothbrushes and paste, used eye glasses and hearing aides all for charity.
We also inform people about Rotary in General and Rotary Caulfield in particular.
After 8 1/2 months of working at least weekly, sometimes more often this Art Project was opened.
There were a lot of people present, invited guests, friends, Artists, Rotarians and many interested in this community.
What started as a small project became a much larger one. The fence on the back left of the Koonang Uniting Church was beautifully decorated with tiles, all painted by members of the community, residents in nursing homes in the area, schools, Yoralla members, artists, Rotarians, and people who dropped into the Thursday pancake sessions.
Five Totem Poles were erected. The poles being decorated on the Thursday morning open sessions, and the heads being made by a group of artists who helped Anthony Breslin bring his dream to reality. These were placed among the community garden plots. At the base of each totem pole is a seat, also decorated on the Thursday mornings.
The back wall of the Church building and part of its side wall were also decorated by work of the artists and Anthony Breslin.
It was a pleasure to behold.
The completed tiles were all collected and ready to install onto the fence and wall at the back of the Venue.
Such excitement in the air as the artists assembled got ready to add the first tile.
The art work by local groups is just so colourful and wonderful to see.
After a very concentrated effort by those present the tiles made it to their resting place for all to see.
