This project will create a documentary to encourage community members to talk about their experience during and after the 2019 bushfires, through focus groups and individual interviews. Photographs will be edited in, as well as footage of current bushfire mitigation and recovery activities. Participants will share their experiences and reflect on their feelings about the bushfire and its aftermath, as well as what they have done to recover.
The process will focus on healing and building resilience through sharing and connection.
The final product will be premiered at a catered, whole-of-community event.
The documentary and raw footage will be analysed for future disaster recovery planning.
