The stories...

Who knows? Maybe you'll find your story...

The final map.

In the cabinets down stairs we displayed the creations of the craft workshops.

In the listening station we had looped audio stories that people could sit down and listen to. They were collected by our story collectors roving around the city during the month.

On the walls we transcribed some of the longer stories with a typewriter, overlaying the stories with old copies of Melways.

It's amazing to compare the vibrant final map with the blank canvas we started with. Thank you Melbourne for sharing so many stories!

The blank canvas.

These photos were taken pre-opening... it's amazing to see how many stories were collected over the month!
