Description: 23 new street signs placed under the real street sign names at main intersections in the City of Vincent.

Date Unveiled:

Locations: The 23 street signs can be found at the major intersections of the 5 buroughs around the City of Vincent in Western Australia.

Background: Urban Storylines Transformed Into a Future Agenda is a project by the German project group Reinigungsgesellschaft (RG) and the City of Vincent in Perth, Western Australia to rename streets in the area.  RG, along with artists in residence, listened and collected information about the current social and economic developments in the area before transforming the ideas and themes into short narratives which were then place on street signs.

While the existing street signs represent names linked with the area's historical past including settler's names and geographical places overseas, the new street names represent current community vision and issues. The main topics that RG focused on during the public forums were migration, community needs, indigenous life, housing, traffic and ecology.

23 street signs were designed and currently appear under the real street names at main intersections in the City of Vincent.
