I Had a Dream
If you've ever been to Newtown in Sydney, you'll know the "I Have A Dream" mural, which has occupied a prominent spot on King street (the main thoroughfare) for 20 years.
It's a remarkable mural, not only because it was created "illegally" (no permissions, no Council approval, no funding), but also because it has survived the creeping gentrification of the local area for such a long time. This is largely due to the special place it has in the hearts of locals, who are fiercely protective of the mural. The message of Martin Luther King's iconic "I have a dream" speech is about tolerance and acceptance of each other, no matter who we are. You could say that the Martin Luther King mural has been adopted as the unofficial symbol of Newtown, as these are the values that define living in the inner west.
