The CSPA is looking for passionate sub-committee (area champions) representatives for South Yarra, Prahran and Windsor. This does not require as much time as being on the CSPA board but means once a quarter you may be called on to provide updates pertaining to the economic climate in your specific suburb, or to provide feedback on potential future events and campaigns in your area. Our sub-committee members will be those who would proactively liaise with members in their area and be their collective voice. Should this be of interest, please email admin@chapelstreet.com.au

SO CHAPEL

A stand out digital series promoting a selection of unique businesses and people in our iconic area.
We needed to be smart when communicating a message in just 10 seconds. So for this major campaign (approach), we used interesting, but relatable individuals to create cut-through, engagement and interest. The audience is not bombarded with too much information, instead, we entertain them for a moment with stand out digital content imagery and entice them to visit our website and find out more about Chapel Street Precinct.

Look for the Paw-on-the-Door

We know and love that many of our Chapel Precinct businesses are pet-friendly and we want this unique point of difference to be celebrated! To create further foot (and paw!) traffic within Chapel Precinct, the CSPA wants to work together with you (our traders) to amplify our added shopping panting perk!

Jamie Durie’s Groundswell

Many of our Chapel Precinct businesses are undertaking initiatives or selling products that are eco-friendly and we want this unique point of difference and important conversation to be celebrated! So, for a campaign later in the year, we will be focusing on just this…  the things our members are doing and selling to help planet earth. The CSPA wants to work together with you (our local businesses) to support and amplify your environmental sustainability initiatives, or the eco-products you may be selling.  

We have already locked in much-loved Australian television personality and environmentalist Jamie Durie to film in our iconic precinct for this important campaign. Now we are reaching out to ask if your business is eco-friendly and if you wish to be highlighted as part of this next marketing activity and filming for Groundswell

Please click below to let us know if you would like to be involved and with the details of your green-initiative or product.

Get Off The Couch, Life’s Waiting On Chapel

There is something awry in the cultural zeitgeist. A strange phenomenon taking hold of us ever-social creatures. We’ve traded dance floors for dating apps, restaurants for reheated takeaway, window shopping for web browsing. It’s a pattern of behaviour primed for the sharp comedic commentary of writer/director Julian Lucas (Wildebeest Films), who worked with Chapel Street Precinct’s guerrilla marketing idea to get people off the couch and out living life in their iconic shopping and entertainment destination.
