Oh.Yes.Melbourne finds a new home on Urban Melbourne

Today we're welcoming the newest addition to the team: Oh Yes Melbourne.

Curated by Sydney Struwig, Oh Yes Melbourne (OYM) takes a look at the Melbourne of today and that of yesterday, with a heavy focus on visuals, drawing from Sydney's own extremely large collection of images that grows larger every day.

A flâneur with a keen photographic eye roaming around the city, Sydney & OYM will be showcasing Melbourne's urbanity with a focus on the city's streets and the scenes that are captured within them ('Why We Melbourne'), individual buildings, other urban destinations in Victoria and peering back in time with the 'Today in History' series.

Why We Melbourne 03SEP16

Oh Yes Melbourne has its own dedicated section of the site which also draws on OYM's dedicated social media presence.

As the curator, Sydney has been given editorial freedom and will be complimenting the existing Urban Melbourne publishing cycle.

Once again Melbourne has turned it on for the spectacular cultural juggernaut that is White Night. A crowd of around 600,000 took part in the all night festival of projections, performances, artworks and installations. Stealing the show again this year was the extraordinary projections upon the Royal Exhibition Building.

Comment Sub-optimal outcomes, perceived or otherwise, were always going to be included in the wider level crossing removal project, and Buckley Street in Essendon just so happens to be one of them. In 2015, Urban Melbourne took a look at the Moonee Valley-led council proposal to remove the level crossing at Buckley Street and apply a new structure plan to Essendon.

Victoria Walks, a walking promotion charity supported by VicHeath, is leading a crowdsourcing initiative that is supported by the State Government and 14 councils. The campaign aims to collect and analyse opinions on walking right across the Melbourne metropolitan area. The authorities are asking people to indicate their walking safety concerns through an interactive online map on CrowdSpot's platform.
