The Birth of Selby Community House

This documentary reflects upon the birth of one of Australia’s very first community Houses; Selby.

With interviews, stories, reflections and historical photography, the documentary outlines the becoming of our incredible community house.

We are incredibly grateful to the Tadji and Lia Hills, the Yarra Ranges Council and all members that made this documentary a reality!
