The Soul House is on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri people now called Belgrave amongst the foothills of the Dandenong Ranges and walking distance to the train station. The cottages are nestled amongst gardens by Australia’s most influential landscape designers – Edna Walling and is the former “fairytale cottage” of Paul Jennings author of Around The Twist. Built over 200 years ago by the Beaurepairs family the property was once also a women’s refuge and now is Australia’s first dedicated wellness space for Indian, Pakistani and South Asian women and includes an active artist’s community. This event is open to all people.
