2022 Clarendon Street Stories (Melbourne Open House)

I was delighted to work with the City of Port Phillip on Clarendon Street Stories which seeks to share the history and stories of Clarendon Street’s shops and shopkeepers, then and now, through a self-guided map and guided tours, as part of the Open House Melbourne program for 2022.

My focus was on the history of the See Yup Society temple in Raglan Street, off Clarendon Street. I assisted with interpretive text and also gave a presentation about the temple’s history and organised a tour of the temple by Pauline Tam from the See Yup Society as part of Open House 2022.
