Olive Way

The Olive Way is a drop-in centre through which we offer hospitality to the wider Brunswick community.

The Olive Way is a place of welcome for all who want to use it. We first opened our doors in 2007 responding to a vision and desire to open our doors and offer hospitality beyond Sunday mornings.

The Olive Way is open from 10am to 1pm on Tuesdays & Wednesdays – Tuesday (hot lunch will be served at 12:30pm) and Wednesday  (light refreshments are offered).   We are looking for volunteers to come and help prepare our Tuesday hot meals.

The Olive Arts Collective meets alongside the Olive Way on Wednesdays from 10-12.  It is a grass roots initiative and a collaborative group comprised of people who love to create visual art in all its forms.
