Horizon Festival – 10 arts-fuelled days // 23 Aug - 1 Sep 2019

Our People, Our Place // Maroochydore

Our People, Our Place // Maroochydore

Our People, Our Place is a large-scale photographic projection work that showcases and celebrates the rich diversity of our region.

Combining portraiture, projection and sound, Our People, Our Place tells the story of 32 people from across the Sunshine Coast, of all ages, backgrounds, genders and abilities. Showcasing a refreshing honesty and intimacy, this project shares stories of pursuits of self-discovery and devotion to serving our community, both from those who grew up here, and those who chose to make the Sunshine Coast their home.

We all have a unique story to tell, and artist Jody Haine’s collaborative practice explores how these stories can be unearthed from the individual and shared widely to deconstruct ideas of gender and race within the Australian context.

Our People, Our Place will appear both here at Festival Central as a large scale projection, and at The Old Ambo in Nambour as a video installation. To hear the stories alongside the projection at Maroochydore, please bring along headphones to listen to the recorded stories online.

This is a free event for which you do not need a ticket. You can register your interest to receive updates about the event and important information for your attendance.
