Happenstance logo


Happenstance is a surprising new community arts festival held on the Merri Creek in Coburg North and Fawkner. From 1-5pm on the 25th of February, we invite you to take an unexpected journey along a well-trodden path, and see the creek in a new light. Discover a trail of music, art, and performance celebrating the Merri Creek and all it has to offer.
Happenstance is about engaging with the beautiful natural environment of the Merri Creek, bringing together local communities and highlighting the importance of sustainable practices in urban environments.
In conjunction with Friends of Merri Creek and the Sustainable Living Festival, Happenstance brings together emerging artists with local community groups to highlight the importance of preserving this wonderful natural resource.
There will be so much to discover: enchanting creatures wait to lead you on a journey beyond the physical. Stay a while and revel in the colours and richness of this trail through stories told with dance and movement. Give in to your curiosity, seek out new adventures, and delight in the magic of happenstance.
Happenstance is completely free and is proudly supported by the City of Moreland’s Celebrating Place Grant, Friends of Merri Creek and the Sustainable Living Festival.

Seven Suns


Dear Community,

This is a seriously good men's program.

Seven Sun's Men's Initiation is in its 10th year. People come from far and wide to do this, and there is so much to connect with here. Ceremony, song, sweat lodge, men's business, connection to good people, monthly gatherings, time on the land, support from older men, connection to indigenous elders, family and community focus.

It culminates at the end of the year in a supported vision quest out on the mountain...full ceremonial style.

The info night for this year is Sat 25th 7 p.m at Bend of Islands, details are below. If you know a man or a family who might be interested in this please share it far and wide!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's seriously good.
