About Smith Street Dreaming Retrospective

In 2020 the Smith Street Working Group and the City of Yarra partnered with 3CR to bring a retrospective of the past 7 years of the Smith Street Dreaming Festival - usually a day event held on Smith Street during NAIDOC week.

Presented by 3CR broadcaster Viv Malo (The Black Block), alongside Dave Arden, live to air from the 3CR studios on Saturday 18 July, 1-4pm. The broadcast featured music from past festival performers and interviews with some of the key figures of the Smith Street Dreaming formation:  Colin Hunter, Troy Crellin, Bart Willoughby, Soss, Stephen Thorpe, Joeboy Morgan, Sui Chan, Heng Lim, Yarra Mayor,  James Henry, Mini Racerage, Kutcha Edwards.
