The second phase of Voices of the Wheatbelt took the project to Brookton, Narrogin, Pingelly and Wagin, where 87 participants took part in photography and film workshops.
CAN partnered with the Film and Television Institute to facilitate the workshops, which showed participants how to use photography and film to explore their sense of place and belonging. The participants produced photography and three short films that captured, celebrated and shared the participants’ local Noongar stories.
A selection of the photographs toured the Southern Wheatbelt, culminating with a final exhibition and publication launch in Narrogin to coincide with the Strong Culture, Strong Community program launch. The photographs and films were compiled into a full colour photography book with a DVD entitled Voices of the Wheatbelt: Our Place, Our Stories. The book contains a selection of images taken by community members with each image taking the reader on a journey into an element of Wheatbelt life. The images explore culture, the community and the landscape through the eyes of those who live, play and work in the Wheatbelt.
