The Process

The delivery of Rockhampton Stories has taken place through a series of free, public creative arts workshops spanning 6 months.

These workshops have taken place in a variety of locations, including the Regional Library, Walter Reid Centre and verbYL Youth Space.

Participants at these workshops have developed a local story they wanted to tell and worked with a team of facilitators to ‘bring their story to life’

These stories have used a range of mediums including visual art, video,¬†animation, printmaking, sound recording and photography. We’ve had workshop participants ranging in age from 4 to 84 and people from all walks of life.

Additionally, the project has incorporated training and skills development for a local team of young people. These participants gained skills in:

  • video production (filming & editing)
  • animation
  • sound production
  • photography
  • visual art
  • workshop facilitation

As part of the project, we have also purchased a digital storytelling kit that is available for loan from the Rockhampton Regional Library. The kit consists of a high definition video camera, a sound recorder and a tripod. We welcome you to borrow the kit and create you own local story for the map. Find out more about submitting your story here.
