‘I ♥ Kings Cross’ by Reef Knot was a community-focused art project commissioned by City of Sydney as part of Art & About 2009 and installed across multiple locations in Sydney’s Kings Cross. The project entailed the co-ordination of approximately 25 knitting workshops, co-ordination of six local business partners and a grass-roots publicity campaign. The resulting artwork displayed the creative contributions of over 200 participants from children through to senior citizens, naval officers to architects. ‘I ♥ Kings Cross’ was the recipient of the 2009 Sydney Music Arts & Culture award for ‘Remixing the City’.
