Healing through sharing: Our stories so far

Published on 19 January 2022


While the pandemic came as a surprise to us all, how we lived through it and with it has been different for each and every one of us. The pandemic has affected us in many varied ways, and many of us have stories to tell.
We want you to share your story with us. How was 262 days of lockdown for you? What happened to you and how did you adjust your thoughts, your lifestyle, your work/study?
Healing can happen through sharing experiences. By telling our own stories and listening to others stories we will enhance community connectedness and build stronger bonds with each other.
As we piece together your stories, we will work with local creatives to develop a short documentary and other creative outcomes such as music and mobile projections to be presented at the inaugural Arts and Culture Festival in April 2022. That’s right – by letting us in on your experience you are creating art!
Everyone has a story to tell. So, tell us!

We’ll be collecting your stories until 26 February.
Quote attributable to Mayor Councillor Anthony Marsh:
“We want to hear our community’s stories. Reflecting on the past two years will help us heal, learn, grow and be inspired.
“The stories we uncover will be curated into a free, accessible and inclusive community arts event.
“Let’s make magic of our memories!”
