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

Our People, Our Place // Nambour

Our People, Our Place // Nambour

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 Jody’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 in Nambour as a video installation and at Festival Central, Maroochydore as a large scale projection. 

The accompanying recorded stories will be available online during the festival.
