On Thursday March 24th 2011, we filmed Twestival Melbourne. This was a global event held simultaneously all around the world, each city raises money for their own local charity. For Melbourne, this charity was STREAT – an organisation that endeavours to help youth who are homeless and to gain long-term employment. STREAT developed some of Melbourne’s very first food-carts, providing opportunity to many disadvantaged youth.
We edited this as a Same Day Edit, edited overnight in fact, and we hope you enjoy this insight into STREAT!
Thanks to all the sponsors who donated auction items, and of course to everyone who braved the Melbourne weather and came down to STREAT HQ. As this was a Twitter event there was a constant stream of tweets - check out #twestivalmel and @streat for latest tweets.
Special thanks to Jane & Steve from Twestival for all the help in the lead up to the event. Also thanks to Rebecca Scott, CEO of STREAT, for all of her support and great speech! Lastly thank you to Ren for her interview at the Federation Square Food Cart.
