Welcome to Come To Where I Am – Australia.
In 2020, writers from across the country were commissioned to create a new 10 minute story that was made into a short video postcard – a snapshot of where they live – the places, people and environment that shapes their experience as Australians and artists. They took many forms – autobiographical monologues, new works of fiction, and contemporary tales based on traditional stories.
Fifteen stories were produced featuring sixteen writers, screening fortnightly as live watch parties on Facebook. We travelled to capital cities, tropical locations, a family farm in rural SA, and a tree-changed family in the Victorian highlands, just to name a few. The series brought together artists and audiences in a celebration of our connection to the places that shape us.
The four volumes of stories now live on as on-demand presentations in our Screening Room and on the Paines Plough website. Keep scrolling to learn about last year’s participants and to visit their video postcard.
