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