Since coming on board, The Geraldton Project has delivered 317 “activations”, resulting in 4747 participants and 9497 spectators using the space. This equates to a total engagement of 14,254 community members and visitors.

“We’re continuing to work with local artists, community groups, organisations and individuals to offer diverse and creative activities for the Geraldton community,” David Bowman-Bright, from The Geraldton Project, said.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn welcomed The Geraldton Project’s 12-month extension.

“We knew Rocks Laneway would be a hit in our community, but with the innovation and enthusiasm of the team at The Geraldton Project, the space has been taken to a new level,” he said.

“Not only do the stats prove this success, but the positive community sentiment that surrounds the laneway speaks volumes.”
