The iconic Dancing Dog building is for sale. The response from the local community shows how much people care about this building and it’s not just about aesthetics or café lattes. It’s about the character of the building and the soul it gives to Footscray. It is clear the community already feels some sense of ownership of this building and would be developed in an inappropriate way – particularly if it were turned into private apartments and lost to the wider community forever.
We are working to raise the funds to purchase via crowd funding money from the community to buy the building and keep it as a community asset. With limited time we are setting up all the required structures to be able to purchase and keep the building in the community… the clock is ticking and AND we need more help. If you can help please do the following:
- Pledge @ Save the Dancing Dog Building
- Share on Social Media using #letsbuythedog & ask people to pledge
- Speak to people
- Share stories of similar projects that inspired us
