Using interviews captured with real local people we will create episodes that capture the passion and spirit of the Sydney�s inner west. The project recently received support and funding from Marrickville Council. In the rst instance with the material we will be celebrating the voices of the inner west and their passion for the social issues.
The Newtown Fixers Club interviews are a series of 3min conversations with real people from the town of Newtown NSW and the Inner West of Sydney. The project aims to showcase passionate people from a number of different walks of life and aims to show their personal stories of how they become impacted by a range of social topic.
We see the inner west as a model for modern Australia with a wealth of diversity living very comfortably together and creating one hell of a inclusive colourful creative place in one of Sydney’s most densly populated suburbs.
