Places to Connect

Places to Connect is an initiative by City of Ryde designed to showcase the unique personality of our city. Each video pairs one of Ryde’s distinctive urban landscapes with audio of poetry, written by our local community. These poems help us see and experience some of the places we live, work and play in the City of Ryde in a new way.
