Docklands flash mob

03 Sep 2013

Docklands flash mob Image

By Sean Car

Docklands charity The Big Umbrella last month staged a flash mob as a one-year celebration of its Study 4 Change program.

The 70-strong flash mob, featuring secondary students from Noble Park, Eltham and Bellarine, appeared in front of the NAB building along Harbour Esplanade in what was a rehearsal for an even larger one planned at Federation Square.

Students were accompanied by teachers and program facilitators for the stunt, which was choreographed and orchestrated by wellbeing coach and “happiness guru” Frazer Kirkman.

The Big Umbrella founder Justin Dickinson said the flash mob provided students with the perfect means of celebration.

“It was an interactive and enjoyable way to end their training day together,” he said.

Study 4 Change works in association with Melbourne City Mission and the Father Bob Maguire Foundation in providing schools with a 10-week program educating youth on leadership, social justice and philanthropy.

The Federation Square flash mob will portray an anti-slavery message and will also feature an awareness walk by students from Noble Park from their school to the city.

Mr Dickinson said the flash mob would be the program’s biggest awareness raiser yet.
