let the advertising begin!

Unfortunately, I am not referring to any fun type of advertising.  The advertising I elude to is the advertising of my application to the council to change the use of 49 Porter Street, Prahran from an office space to a gallery space.

After 80 days, the council have finally printed this fluorescent yellow sign for me to stick in my window to let my neighbours and nearby residents know about my cunning mission to help exhibit aspiring and emerging artists. 

I’m pretty sure I could have put the sign together in less than 80 days.  In a pointillist style with a 0.01mm fineliner.  Whilst playing the piano.  With my hands tied behind my back.  Standing on my head.  In the dark. 

The fluorescent yellow sign needs to be up for at least 14 days.  The council have also sent letters to 110 of my neighbours and nearby residents to let them know of my application and their right to object… all at a direct cost (to me) of $600 (+ the original application fee of $502).  The purpose of this exercise?  To give my neighbours and nearby residents the opportunity to object to my dastardly plan. 

Seriously though, this is all a part of the process and the most important thing for us to remember is that we are on our way!
