Locations change for each event. The first Urban Love event was at UPN May 26th, 2012- yes a difficult to find place, but definitely worth it! Right outside one of the entrances to UTS-University of Technology Sydney.
Directions: Take escalator on George St- (Charlie Lovett side) opposite the Mercure Hotel down to the subway. Walk left through tunnel til you find an entrance to a gorgeous big walkway lined with lights and trees. When you see the upturned shopping trolleys and hear some beat box tunes and laughter you will know you have arrived. A well hidden spot right outside UTS.
Why was this spot chosen for the first event?
Creator Qu Faraday who experienced Being Public for 20 Days and 20 nights in Sydney's CBD to test how livable Sydney is for the disadvantaged and homeless answered 'In my 20 days of Being Public this was the MOST DANGEROUS place for a person to sleep at night. I learned this through trying to sleep on one of the benches and finding someones hand in my jeans trying to pick pocket me. I was gratefully informed by some helpful security guards from UTS that this was NOT THE PLACE TO SLEEP IF I WANTED TO STAY SAFE'.
Why is this place SO UNSAFE?
The access is difficult for Police to get to quickly, with no road access. It is also difficult to describe how to get to this particular spot quickly. Ultimo Pedestrian Network (UPN) is located "nowhere in the middle of everything" -right in the middle of the city! The SYdney Harbour Foreshore Authority has recognized it's need for revitalization and community loving!.
The #2 Urban Love Bash has been announced and will be held on the 16th of June, 2012 in the REDFERN COMMUNITY GARDEN on James St.
What you need to Do:
- Make sure you INVITE YOURSELF to this event! And INVITE YOUR FRIENDS too!!

As Qu says GET SOCIAL, BE PUBLIC and STAY FRESH!!!
