Our Story Your Story: Aftermath

Feature Presentation

Join the team from ABC Open as they discuss their interactive online documentary, Aftermath, created with survivors of natural disaster.

Aftermath brings together photos, videos and blogs created by community members to tell their stories of recovery from the 2011 Queensland floods, Cyclone Yasi and the Victorian Black Sunday bushfires.

ABC Open partnered with us for our exhibition Bouncing Back from Disaster and will be discussing the process of bringing this amazing project together.
