    In April 2008, the Grenda Bus Company relocated from its historic home of 62 years. To mark this moment of change, City of Greater Dandenong coordinated an arts installation project at the bus depot involving seven artists in the two week gap between decommission and demolition. Using only materials from the site, the evocative interventions crystalised the legacy left behind.

    An entire year of planning preceded the two weeks for which the depot was occupied. The site was managed as a work-site, with thorough adherence to OH&S guidelines. Council had a major role in facilitating all of this, offering the artists considerable support without which such a project would be impossible.

    Over the week of public exhibition, approximately 1000 people came to see the project, which ultimately created an opportunity for the community as well as present and former Grenda staff to experience, relive and honour a celebrated workspace.
