Ruby Slipper @ Get Connected – Launching the Carlton Community Website

Last Friday as the sun was breaking golden and warm over Drummond and Rathdowne Streets, this little writer popped out of bed, walked up University Street and stopped for a VERY strong coffee before going to the 7:30am launch of the Carlton Community Website, courtesy of our brilliant clients Peter and David Barnes of Harcourts Carlton.

Held at old skool favorite italian restaurant La Notte on Lygon Street, this second incarnation of the Carlton Community website was launched to a selection of local traders, in addition to members of the City of Melbourne and Yarra. The Carlton Community website is a hub where the community can connect – for business, for employment, for culture – for fun! Featuring beautiful naive illustrations and logos, the website is a real investment in the local community and is already being used and invested in by businesses in the area.

We were impressed by the local employment and news sections particularly, as the website is built for maximum interaction with the community – hopefully connecting local people to jobs, projects and arts events that are occurring in our suburb. There are a range of sponsorship opportunities available to traders for advertising on the page. Editorial submission is welcomed – so if you’ve got a happening in the 3053 postcode, make sure to touch base with them for extra exposure! For further details on marketing your business or becoming involved, email We look forward to working with the Carlton Community Website, promoting some of our own client’s ventures on this exciting new page.

  2. I just love the idea of a community hub — great initiative! And isnt the light wonderful in the early hours? The La Notte back room seems the ideal venue for an early morning community get-togehter.
