This Place 2019

10 local writers, visual artists, photographers and one songwriter were matched to iconic locations in the City of Darebin. Each artist bought their wealth of talent and reimagined the fabulous and forgotten places of Darebin with new works of art. 

The artists’ had five weeks to create a new work inspired by the place they were randomly allocated. You can now read, listen to and view the final pieces here: This Place 2019
