These are stories about a patch of land in Sydney, an infamous acre known as The Block, a place steeped in a rich history of Aboriginal culture, activism and hope.
Over time, tragedy, drug abuse and crime crept into the Indigenous-owned housing precinct. In September 2010, the few remaining tenants received notice to vacate their homes. The Aboriginal Housing Company, which owned the crumbling terraces, was keen to redevelop the land.
Now vacant, the Block sits on the verge of a new, uncertain rebirth
This virtual time capsule invites you to explore The Block, to witness the events that defined its 40-year history, and meet the people whose lives it has shaped.
