On the 3rd December 2015 Market Square Shopping Centre celebrated its 30th Birthday and 178 years of history. As part of this momentous occasion various historical projects, called Remember With Us, were developed by Clever Digital to capture Market Square’s rich history and to give customers, retailers, contractors and staff the opportunity to remember.
Clever Digital created a permanent public installation at Market Square Shopping Centre. The nine mural depictions of the 178 years of history are installed on Level 1 of Market Square, outside the lifts. The murals were developed with the hope that many future generations of Geelong locals and visitors may enjoy learning about the important place Market Square has held in the minds, hearts and memories of those from the past.
A limited edition book was created for Market Square Shopping Centre to celebrate the muals and present the historical archive to key stakeholders.
The project wouldn’t have been possible without the time and effort of the project team:
– Geelong Heritage Centre: Phoebe Wilkins & Caroline Stok (images and historical queries)
– Geelong Advertiser: Peter Begg (Historian, images)
– Market Square Shopping Centre: Sarla Holmes (Project Lead)
– Clever Digital: Rory Flynn (Creative)
– Bookcrafts: John Garner (Printing)
An online version of the book can be viewed HERE.
