Back for a very special Season Two!
Writers from across the country have created short video postcards – a snapshot of the place where they live right now – of the places, people and environments that shape their experience as Australians and artists. They take many forms – autobiographical monologues, new works of fiction, and contemporary tales based on traditional stories.
Come To Where I Am – Australia is a wonderful opportunity to reflect not only upon an extraordinary time in our collective history, but to also remember that the environments we inhabit are as much a part of the fabric of our cultural understanding and connection as the people within them. Place matters, places change, but our need for community and belonging remains.
