of cross disciplinary arts projects to build community connection across south-east Australia.
The project is facilitated by award winning Canberra based Rebus Theatre and has taken place in Bega Valley Shire, Eurobodalla Shire, East Gippsland, Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council, and the ACT with three artists selected from each region.
In November 2022 Rebus led its first of 2 residencies for the artists to heal their own trauma from the Black Summer Fires, and to develop skills and networks to further the possibility of trauma informed practice and arts-led economic recovery. Following on from the second residency in early 2023, artists have developed their organisational, artistic and leadership skills by working individually and in collaboration on projects. Their projects were creative and diverse with a focus on bringing about increased hopefulness and enhancing community spirit.
